American Team Favored to Win 2013 World Series

American Team Favored to Win 2013 World Series

ST. LOUIS – The St. Louis Cardinals made history Friday when they became the 104th American team to win the World Series. With their 6-2 victory over the Texas Rangers in game 7, The Cardinals extended the United States’ formidable record in the competition, which has only twice been won by a non-American club when the Toronto Blue Jays recorded back-to-back victories in 1992 and 1993.

“It’s just a fantastic feeling,” said Cardinals’ coach Tony La Russa. “To continue the legacy of this great country, which has produced winning team after winning team for over a century, it is truly an honor I will feel for the rest of my life. God bless America.”

The Series, which pits the winner of The American League vs. the winner of The National League, was precedented in that it was contested between not one, but two American teams, with not a single non-American team even coming close.

The dominance of American clubs throughout World Series history has continued to stir debate between sporting fans and disgruntled foreign nationals as to the competition’s validity as a “world sport.”

    I don't buy it. If an "American" team was a lock to win, why would there still be a team in Toronto. Sure they rank 23rd in Payroll, doesn't mean they can't win… except that it does.
