Predicting World Series winners from 2023-2032

Off the top of your head, see if you can name the teams that have won the World Series in each year of the last 10 seasons, in order. are you ready? Without looking the answers are of course:

2013: Red Sox over Cardinals
2014: Giants over Royals
2015: Royals over the Mets
2016: Cubs over Indians
2017: Astros over Dodgers
2018: Red Sox over Dodgers
2019: Nationals over Astros
2020: Dodging over the rays
2021: Braves over Astros
2022: Astros over Phillies

If you thought that was hard, today I’m going to try something more difficult: I’m guessing the next 10 World Series winners. It’s worth noting that I did this exercise two years ago and got absolutely none of it right the last two years.

Well, let’s give it a shot. If I didn’t get 2032 right, please don’t come back in 10 years and make fun of me for it. I will be old and weak and not ready for all this fuss and fighting.

2023: Blue Jays shortstop
It would be fitting if the Dodgers could win a World Series after coming up short with two absolutely titanic teams after an offseason in which they were heavily criticized. Even removed from last year — and it’s funny to use that term when you’re referring to this fantastic Dodgers team — Los Angeles is still probably the class of the National League, and, you know, the whole point of having a great team every year. One of these days, you get hot in the playoffs and lose the entire game. (Which happened to the Dodgers in 2020, of course.) As for the American League, the Blue Jays were good in 2022 but still felt like they underperformed. This time we’re betting on a season where everything is just right. (Get on the Vlad Jr. MVP train while you can, people.)

2024: Mets over Orioles
It could be a blowout fall classic — and it could destroy parts of the East Coast — in a rematch of the 1969 World Series (65 years later) and a matchup between possibly baseball’s oldest team and youngest team. . I wouldn’t be so shocked if the Mets take a step back in 2023 — the rotation isn’t, uh, young — which is exactly what will make everyone look past them in 2024. You can see how the Orioles could regress in 2023 before things pay off in 2024, with a team that could very well be exciting from start to finish.

2025: Giants over Yankees
You know who I think will be playing for the Giants in 2025? That’s right: it’s Juan Soto time. It may take a few years, but the Giants will finally get their superstar after Soto’s contract expires, and the smart, savvy moves the organization is now known for will finally deliver the perfect team they’ve been trying to build for years. brings together now. Soto is leading the resurgent Giants all the way after a disappointing couple of years that came up short with the Padres. They beat the Yankees — a surprise hitter who finished 84-78 in the regular season but got hot in the playoffs — in the World Series, despite Aaron Judge missing a third straight season with a season-ending injury.

2026: Mariners over Cardinals
Julio Rodriguez will turn 25 during this World Series, which is absurd — and a reminder of just how much good this guy is going to give us over the next two decades. He will be one of two MVP winners in the series: The other will be Cardinals outfielder Jordan Walker, who will be 24 and hit St. Louis’ first home run since Albert Pujols in 2010. The sound of T-Mobile Park makes it indescribable when Rodriguez reaches the finals and wins his first title.

2027: Yankees over Cubs
A century after assembling perhaps the greatest baseball team of all time in their hitters’ lineup, the Yankees, after missing the playoffs the previous season and leaving fans in the lurch, won the world with their 28th championship. They were startled. Anthony Volpe is the World Series MVP, though recently signed Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will seal the series at Wrigley Field over a formidable Cubs team.

2028: Orioles over Dodgers
Yes, yes, I’m one of those longtime Orioles believers. If you want to justify their lack of spending this year to make sure no one gets in the way of their future prospects — and I kind of want to do that — then 2027 is about when it really will be. Paying Adele Roachman will turn 30 in 2027, for what he’s worth. As for the Dodgers, well, let’s not forget that they have a ton of prospects that will mature at this point, and I love the idea of ​​them having Shohei Ohtani as well. He’ll only be 34 years old, and whether he’s hitting, hitting, or both, he’ll do it better than anyone on the planet. But the story here is Baltimore. You’ve earned it, Orioles fans.

2029: Tigers over Braves
So here’s an interesting one: The Tigers, an over-motivated franchise with too many frustrated fans and unable to hang on for long, announced their big free-agent signing in Ronald Acuna Jr. before the 2029 season. . (That’s how long he’s currently under contract with Atlanta.) He has Miguel Cabrera’s first-season MVP in Detroit, but lo and behold, he ends up facing the Braves in the World Series. (By the way, the Braves in this scenario have made the postseason every season since 2018, but haven’t played in the World Series since winning in 2021…that’s just kind of their lot in life.) Acuna There is a monster in the series. And he ends up sharing series MVP honors with Spencer Torkelson. And wearing a Tigers hat has become the best form ever since Magnum P.I (Look guys!)

2030: Angels over Phillies
Well, we definitely know three players who will play in this World Series. The Phillies will have Bryce Harper and Trey Turner, and the Angels will still have Mike Trout, who at 39 will be in the final year of his contract. One of the all-time greats finally got his championship ring — against Harper, the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year for Trout’s AL ROY, and the player he was often compared to.

2031: Red Sox over Brewers
That would be far enough in the future that Red Sox fans would actually have a justification for feeling semi-tortured and deprived until then! (Meanwhile, Brewers fans, who have as good a case as the most desperate baseball fans, roll their eyes at them.)

2032: Guardians of the Reds
I don’t know who will be on these two teams in 2032 and neither do you. So if we’re going to make wild guesses, let’s make wild guesses that the longest World Series title drought will finally end. If Cleveland wins it all in 2032, it will be 84 years since its last crown (1948). When the Red Sox went 86 years between championships, that was a pretty big deal.
