2 Point Lead: Worst Teams to Win the World Series

Alright, the Mets and Royals/Blue Jays are pretty good teams. Whichever one of these clubs cruises through four more wins and clinches the World Series will certainly deserve it.

But have you ever thought how some teams might not be worthy of being the last ones standing after a grueling October journey?

It just goes to show, it's not which team is best; it's who catches fire at the right time.
