Wondering how Game of Thrones and Avengers will end? Red Sox players take their best guesses

FORT MYERS -- With March crawling to an end, two major pop cultural events draw near: the final season of Game of Thrones (April 14) and the premiere of Avengers: Endgame (April 26). (Also, Major League Baseball's Opening Day is on March 28, if you're into that.)

With both GoT and Endgame, there has been a massive amount of speculation for what's to come, and if you haven't watched either of them, (a) what's wrong with you, and (b) be aware that spoilers follow.

Who will sit on the Iron Throne? Are Bran and the Night King one and the same? Will Marvel start a new chapter with the deaths of Captain America and Iron Man? Why is Gamora?

In the latest episode of The Bradfo Sho, Red Sox reliever Ryan Brasier predicted Sansa Stark will sit on the Iron Throne by the show's end, Jon Snow will die (again) and Daenerys Targaryen (a.k.a. Khaleesi) will go back home to Dragonstone.

Bovada currently has Bran Stark (+225) as the favorite to sit on the Iron Throne as ruler of Westeros, with Snow second (+350), Khaleesi third (+450) and Sansa Stark fourth (+700). The betting odds currently show Snow (+10000) is less likely to die than Sansa Stark (+1000) and Khaleesi (+3300).

Several of Brasier's teammates had opinions on both the show and Marvel's next major movie.

(Important note: Brasier has already changed his stance on one GoT matter since appearing on The Bradfo Sho.)

Center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr.

Avengers: "For sure, Thanos is dying. Black Panther is coming back alive. Thanos' daughter (Gamora) is going to come back alive for her man (Star Lord).

Reliever Matt Barnes

GoT: "I think Bran (Stark) ends up controlling the dragons."

Avengers: "I think Thanos has to die, doesn't he? Doesn't Thanos have to die? Isn't that how all the Marvel movies work?"

Catcher Blake Swihart

GoT: "It's got to be Khaleesi (on the Iron Throne). The dragons do it all."

Avengers: "I think all the people who disappeared from 'the snap' are going to come back, just like Superman came back (in Justice League). They're all going to come back and mess (Thanos) up."

Infielder Michael Chavis

GoT: "I think Khaleesi is going to be on the Iron Throne. I just feel like the dragons play too well. But, I don't know, the fact that the White Walkers have a dragon, too, could get a little bit weird. But I hope Khaleesi is on top."

Avengers: "(Infinity War) just mentally messed me up. I was so confused with the whole thing. (Thanos) was just like snapping his fingers, 'You should've gone for the head.' I read a bunch of theories about Marvel and I have no idea, honestly. I'm really excited for (Endgame) to come out."

Infielder/Outfielder Sam Travis

GoT: "I think it's going to be Jon Snow and Khaleesi (on the Iron Throne). Khaleesi's got the dragons, obviously. And Jon Snow came back from the dead, so I mean, I guess he's just immortal."

Outfielder Bryce Brentz

GoT: "I'm not going to bet against any dragons."


GoT: "Arya (Stark) is going to end up on the Iron Throne, as someone else. I think she'll do something like what she did to the people from the Red Wedding (the Freys) when she poisoned all of them."

Avengers: "I think Cap (Captain America) dies. I'm not sure about Iron Man, but definitely Cap."
