Very early 2008 baseball preview

Today the question was put to me: who would you bet on to face off in the World Series under the following two simple rules:

a. The Boston Red Sox may not be chosen
b. The New York Mets may not be chosen

My own two answers were the Fukudome-equipped Seattle Mariners, and the Milwaukee Brewers. I can see a Phillies argument to be made, but can there be any others? Surely the Yankees and Angels are no more likely than Seattle.
