QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Who’s going to win the World Series?

The News Editing class is getting responses to this question from Wingate students this afternoon. After last night’s game the Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros are tied at one win each.



“I know the Astros are definitely going to win. Statistically speaking, it’s time.” — Zac Ezzell, sophomore, Accounting major

“I’ve never really been a huge baseball fan, but I usually pull for the underdogs. In this world series between the Astros and Dodgers, I’m hoping that the Astros win because this is only their second time being to a world series.” –Ayanna Witherspoon, sophomore, Human Services major


“I say the Astros (will win). They seem like a great team, who click together as a group. The Dodgers were a little arrogant coming in.” – Robbie Thomas; Junior Math Major



“I think the Dodgers are going to win they seem good this year.” -Stephen Fisenne, Public Relations Senior



“I think the Dodgers are going to win. They have a stocked team. I enjoy it when Clayton Kershaw is pitching the game.”  -Jaleen Miller, Management Sophomore


“The Astros, they have a higher power offense than the Dodgers do.  The Dodgers have them beat in pitching, but all they really have on offense is Yasiel, Puig, and Turner” – Bruce Booreman, Senior Music Education



“I think the Dodgers are going to win the World Series.  They have home-field advantage for the series, the best pitcher in the majors with Clayton Kershaw, and a strong offense to help them score runs.”  – Stephen Potter, Senior CCR major


Question of the Week: Who will win the World Series?

Baseball’s World Series starts tomorrow and the COM 220 News Writing class went out on campus today to see who was going to be paying attention to it. Will the winner be the Chicago Cubs or the Cleveland Indians? What do you think?

First, some great analysis from math professor Dr  Greg Bell, who spoke to class member Zeriq Lolar: 


Others are rooting for less analytical reasons:

Class members Delaney Smith and Kendall Sienon talked with finance major Chris Birozes from Suwanee, Ga. He said he’s only going to watch the Series because his roommate is. He said he’d like to see the Cubs win.



Here’s another Cubs fan, interviewed by Anthanee Doyle and Andrew Elliott:


Class members Jackson Kaplan and Rachael Robinson interviewed Matt Urbancyzk, graduate assistant for intramural and club sports. He thinks the Cubs are going to win because of superior pitching. “I(‘s the year to break the 107-year curse,” he said, referring to how it’s been since the Cubs won the World Series.


Here’s Ryan Brown, WU’s director of broadcasting and video services:
