That goes well with the Phillies 2010-2011 offseason championship and the Red Sox in 2011-2012. If I remember correctly, the Red Sox also broke the record for most wins in a season and books were written about the greatness of that four aces Phillies rotation.

Oh, wait. Books were written about those guys. The point still stands.

In any event, this holiday season, please predict responsibly.
