The Orioles and Pirates won their respective LCS as they did in 1979 so they will meet in a rematch. The actual 1979 World Series went 7 games and lets hope this series is as exciting or more so. Since there was 4 days in between the LCS and the World Series I am going to use the exact rotations the teams used in 1979.
