And the 2015 MLB World Series Winner Is..

By Prime Visibility, Special for  USDR

Digital marketing agency Prime Visibility today announced the results of a social media “fan confidence” survey, in which the St. Louis Cardinals was the team chosen by fans to win the MLB Championship. To gauge fan confidence, the agency analyzed over 2 million positive mentions across all 30 MLB teams throughout spring training. Based upon the fan confidence score, each team was awarded a  standing.

Key  Findings:

  • The Chicago White Sox was the only team with a fan confidence score below 50% (42.23%); in turn, the team is predicted to go 58-104.
  • The St. Louis Cardinals had the highest fan confidence (96.77%); the team has made the postseason three out of the last four years, winning the World Series in 2011 and making it to the NLCS last year.
  • Fans predict last year’s champions, the San Francisco Giants, to come in last place in their division with a record of 63-99.
  • The New York Yankees, a perennial favorite, are predicted to be a .500 team; with the “core four” gone, the team is looking for an identity with a team of aging veterans and new  faces.
