In a World Series preview, Grantland colleague, accomplished podcaster, blogger and baseball researcher, and inaugural Jonah Keri podcast guest Rany Jazayerli predicts the St. Louis Cardinals will win the World Series.

Then, Rangers assistant GM Thad Levine takes us through the making of a two-time pennant-winning team, Texas’ ability to make big deadline deals, the value of great scouting and player development, the Mark Teixeira megatrade that started it all, and the blueprint for your favorite team to get there, too.
