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 of the last 10 seasons, in order. are you ready No peeking. The answers are, of course:

2013: Red Sox at Cardinals
2014: Giants over Royals
2015: Royals over Mets
2016: Children on Indians
2017: Astros over Dodgers
2018: Red Sox over Dodgers
2019: More Citizens than Astros
2020: Dodgers over Rays
2021: Braves at Astros
2022: Astros at Phillies

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

Well, let’s give it a shot. If I don’t get 2032 right, please make fun of me by not coming back in 10 years. I will grow old and feeble and will not be ready for all kinds of commotion and strife.

2023: Dodgers at Blue Jays
It would be incredibly fitting if the Dodgers, after falling short with two absolutely titanic teams, won the World Series after an offseason in which they were widely criticized for not making enough big moves. Even stripped of last year — and it’s kind of funny to use that term when you’re referring to this fantastic Dodgers team — Los Angeles is still arguably the class of the National League. And, you know, having a great team every year is that, one of these days, you’re going to get hot in the playoffs and win the whole thing. (Which of course happened for the Dodgers in 2020.) As for the American League, the Blue Jays were good in 2022 but still felt like they underperformed. Here’s betting on a season where everything is just right. (Get on the Vlad Jr. MVP train while you can, guys.)

2024: Mets at Orioles
It would be a blast — and could destroy parts of the Eastern Seaboard — in the Fall Classic, a rematch of the 1969 World Series (65 years later) and possibly baseball’s oldest team and most. There will be a match for the younger team. . I wouldn’t be so shocked if the Mets took a step back in 2023 — that rotation is, uh, not young — which would be exactly what makes everyone look behind them in 2024. You can see how the Orioles can regress in 2023 as well before it all unravels in 2024 with a team that could be a sensation 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’s time. It may take a few years, but once Soto’s contract is up, the Giants will finally have their superstar, and the smart, savvy moves the organization is now known for will finally bring this entire team together. will do what she has been trying to do for a few years. now. After a couple of disappointing years of just falling short with the Padres, Soto leads a completely resurgent Giants. They beat the Yankees — a surprise entry that went 84-78 in the regular season but got hot in the playoffs — in the World Series, with Aaron Judge missing the season-ending injury for the third straight season. Despite living.

2026: Mariners at Cardinals
Julio Rodríguez will be 25 years old during this World Series, which is ridiculous — and a reminder of how much good this guy will give us over the next two decades. He will be one of two MVP winners in that series: The other will be Cardinals outfielder Jordan Walker, who will be 24 years old and win St. Louis’ first home run title since Albert Pujols in 2010. When Rodríguez reaches the finals and captures the franchise’s first title, it will be indescribable.

2027: Yankees over Cubs
After assembling perhaps the greatest baseball team of all time in his Assassin’s Row, the Yankees won their 28th championship after missing the playoffs the previous season and making fans gouge their eyeballs out. Stunned the world. Anthony Volpe is the World Series MVP, though it’s Vladimir Guerrero Jr., a recent free agent signing at Wrigley Field. homer by , which seals the series on a tough Cubs team.

2028: Orioles over Dodgers
Yes, yes, I’m one of those long-term Orioles believers. If you want to excuse their lack of spending this year as a way to make sure no one gets in the way of their future prospects — and I absolutely do — then 2027 will be around the time it will actually happen. Paying Adley Rutschman will be 30 years old in 2027, how much is he worth? As for the Dodgers, let’s not forget that they have a lot of prospects that will be maturing right now, and I like the idea of ​​having Shohei Ohtani with them. He’ll only be 34 years old, and whether he’s pitching, hitting, or both, he’ll be doing better than anyone on the planet. But the story here is from Baltimore. Orioles fans, you’ve earned it.

2029: Tigers at Braves
So here’s something funny: The Tigers, who are so hyped for the franchise, are too disappointed with the fan base to stay down for long, before the 2029 season … Ronald Acuña Jr. Announce the signing of the major free agent. (That’s how long he’s currently signed with Atlanta.) He’s having a Miguel Cabrera-first-year-Detroit MVP-type season, but look, he’s facing the Braves in the World Series. has to (In this scenario, the Braves, by the way, have made the postseason every season since 2018 but haven’t made the World Series since winning in 2021 … it’s just one of those in their lifetime.) Acuña is a monster in the series. , and shared Series MVP honors with Spencer Torkelson. And wearing a Tigers hat becomes the best ever since. Magnum PI (Look it up, kids!)

2030: Phillies over Angels
Well, we definitely know the three players who will play in this World Series. The Phillies will have Bryce Harper and Trea Turner, and the Angels will still be out Mike Trout, who at age 39 will be in the final year of his contract. So it’s fitting that this is the season one of the all-time greats finally won his championship ring — against Harper, the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year to Trout’s AL ROY, and the player who He was often compared.

2031: Red Sox at Brewers
It will be far enough into the future that Red Sox fans will have justification to feel semi-agonized and deprived until then! (Meanwhile, Brewers fans, who have as good a case as the most disillusioned fanbase in baseball, will keep an eye on them.)

2032: Guardian overreads
I don’t know who will be on these two teams in 2032, and neither do you. So if we’re just going to make wild guesses, let’s make a wild guess as to who will end the longest World Series title drought. If Cleveland wins it all in 2032, it will be 84 years since its last crown (1948). When 86 years passed between Red Sox titles, it was considered a big deal.
