Who will win the 2011 World Series?

I have no frickin’ idea.

Ok ok. That’s not what the three of you are here for. (Scaby says there are more than 3 of you, but he won’t tell me how many.)

This one isn’t so easy because, at least so far, I haven’t uncovered (for which, as always, I blame Scaby) any synchronicities to guide us to the outcome. But here goes anyway.

First, the Cardinals have won many times, the Rangers never. The Cardinals won the ’64 Series in seven games, and the ’82 Series in seven as well. We can apply the Code sequence using the Fibonacci ratio as follows: 82-64 = 18. 18 x 1.618 = 29. 29 added to 1982 = 2011. So our prediction is that if it goes to 7 games, the Cardinals will win. What I don’t love about this is: why use 1982? ’64 was a pretty major series, but nothing particularly distinguishes ’82. In contrast, when the Cards won in 2006, at least there you had three *consecutive* wins via the Fibonacci ratio: 1967-1982-2006, that is, 1982-1967 = 15. 15 x 1.618 = 24. 1982 + 24 = 2006. So, the 2006 win might have been a very cool call.

HOWEVER, the Rangers have something going for them that I think gives them the edge overall. They were initially formed in 1961 as the Washington Senators. That’s 50 years ago, which invokes the Power of Ten. Ten years later, in 1971, they were changed from the Senators to the Texas Rangers. So that’s a second Power of Ten date that cycles to 2011, viz.: 1971-1961 = 10, rolled forward 4 times = 2011. Thus, we have both a viable sequence (1961-1971-2011) and additionally we have time periods using the Power of Ten, including the 50-year measure, which implies strength.

Scratch the Cards in the 7th game. I’m going with the Texas Rangers ALL THE WAY.

If this turns out to be wrong, I’m gonna squash Scaby for good.

Even though I have grown somewhat fond of the little bugger, I really mean it this time.
