They were built to win now and nothing less will satisfy them not to mention their fans.
The core is aging rapidly and may be partially dismantled this off-season. This particular configuration will not get another chance to win and walk together.
Predictions? I am certifiably lousy at most of them. The starting pitching should be sufficient to go deep if not all the way. The relief pitching is less certain. The batting is even less certain.
I have no idea, but I wouldn't be surprised if they falter. I hope I'm wrong.
