"I made the decision to come here, because here I have the opportunity to win the World Series," said Encarnacion, whose 193 homers over the past five seasons are the second most in the majors. "This team, they look great and I think they have great, young talented players here. We have a lot of opportunity to be in the World Series again and win it."
"There are a lot of unknowns," he said. "Just being brutally honest, it could go one of two ways. They could come back with a sense of entitlement, or they can come back being hungry, knowing where they were and be like, man, I want to get back there again. My bet is on No. 2 with this team."
