2013 World Series Champion is Anyone’s Guess

The field of contenders to win the World Series is wide open as the 2013 Major League Baseball season gets under way this weekend.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 11% of Baseball Fans think the Los Angeles Angels will win the World Series this year, but just as many (11%) say the Detroit Tigers will redeem themselves from last year’s series loss. Ten percent (10%) believe the San Francisco Giants will win a second straight championship, but nine percent (9%) think the Washington Nationals will bring a title to the nation’s capital.
