Video Transcript

Adam Kaufman:

Who is going to win this thing?

Matt Meiselman:

Let’s go Seager over Schwarber. I will take what Julian is saying about Schwarber tiring out and have him lose in the finals. And yeah, this just feels weird to me buying a narrative, but I’ll pick Seager to win.

Julian Edlow:

I already put it at Soto vs. Alonso—Alonso is kind of boring, he’s won too many and the other side of the bracket is weaker, so I’ll take Soto over Alonso.

Matt’s Pick: Corey Seager (+1000)

Julian’s Pick: Juan Soto (+550)
