The 2013 Major League Baseball regular season is over and, alas, some teams just didn’t prove to be good enough to make it to October.

Some of them, however, are going to get there in 2014.

That’s the cue for B/R Pop Culture Lead Writer Gabe Zaldivar and MLB Lead Writer Zachary D. Rymer to put their predicting hats on.

Without giving too much away, Gabe likes what he sees in the Beltways. That one Baltimore club has some good talent in place on the offensive side of the ball and some young talent waiting to contribute on the pitching side. The team in Washington, meanwhile, was plenty talented this season and ought to be a threat in 2014.

As for Zachary, he likes that one team in the desert that has that one amazing first baseman. He also likes a certain team in Chicago to pull off a Cleveland Indians-like turnaround.
