Predict the World Championship winners from 2023-2032

Off your head, see if you can name the teams that have won the World Series each year for the last 10 seasons, in order. are you ready? no peeking. The answers, of course, are:

2013: Red Sox over the Cardinals
2014: Giants over Royals
2015: Royals on the Mets
2016: Cubs on the Indians
2017: Astros on Dodgers
2018: Red Sox on the Dodgers
2019: Nationals over Astros
2020: Dodgers over the Rays
2021: Braves to the Astros
2022: Astros over Phyllis

If you thought that was hard, today I’m going to try something even more difficult: I’m going to guess the next 10 world championship winners. It is worth mentioning that I did this exercise two years ago And absolutely didn’t get any of the last two years right.

Well, let’s give it a try. If I don’t get 2032 right, please don’t come back in 10 years to make fun of me. I would be old and frail and not ready for all this fuss and strife.

2023: Dodgers over Blue Jays
It would be incredibly fitting if the Dodgers, after failing with two completely giant teams, won the World Series after an unexpected period in which they were widely criticized for not making big enough runs. Even stripped last year — and it’s kind of funny to use that term when you’re referring to this great Dodgers team — L.A. is still the National League class, and you know, the whole point of having a great team every year is that, one day, You’ll fire through the playoffs and win the title outright. (Which, of course, happened in 2020 for the Dodgers.) As for the American League, the Blue Jays did well in 2022, but they still feel like they underperformed. Here’s the bet on a season this time around where everything is going absolutely fine. (Get on board the Vlad Jr. MVP train while you can, folks.)

2024 Mets over the Orioles
This would be a blast for the Fall Classic—and it could devastate parts of the East Coast—it would be a rematch of the 1969 World Series (after 65 years) and a matchup for quite possibly baseball’s oldest and youngest team. . I wouldn’t be shocked if the Mets took a step back in 2023 — that turnover, uh, not young — which would be exactly the thing that gets everyone looking past them in 2024. You can see how the Orioles can take a step back in 2023, too, before it comes to fruition. It pays off in 2024 with a team that can make sense from start to finish.

2025: Giants over Yankees
You know who I think will play for the Giants in 2025? That’s right: it’s Juan Soto’s time. It may take a few years, but the Giants will finally get their superstar once Soto’s contract expires, and the clever moves and wit that this organization is known for will finally make up the full team it’s been trying to build for a few years now. After a few frustrating years of failing to deal with the Padres, Soto leads the up-and-coming Giants all the way. They beat the Yankees—a surprise newcomer who finished 84-78 in the regular season but caught up in the playoffs—in the World Series, despite Aaron Judge missing the end of the season due to injuries for the third straight season.

2026: Mariners over Cardinals
Julio Rodriguez will be 25 during this World Series, which is absurd – and a reminder of how much good this man will do for us over the next two decades. He will be one of two MVP winners in the series: the other will be Cardinals player Jordan Walker, who will turn 24 and win his first St. Louis title since Albert Pujols in 2010. The sound of T-Mobile Park is indescribable when Rodriguez realizes The final game to claim the franchise’s first title.

2027: Yankees over Cubs
A century after bringing together perhaps the greatest baseball team of all time on their killer row, the Yankees, having missed the playoffs the previous season and making fans goosebumps for their eyeballs, stunned the world by winning their 28th championship. Anthony Volpe is the MVP of the World Series, though it’s a homer by newly signed free agent Vladimir Guerrero Jr. at Wrigley Field that seals the series on the Brave Cubs.

2028: Orioles over Dodgers
Yeah, yeah, I’m one of those long-term Orioles believers. If you want to justify their not spending this year as a way to make sure no one gets in the way of their future prospects—and I kinda, kind of want to do that—then 2027 would be a really good time to pay off your debt. Adley Rutschman will turn 30 in 2027, for what it’s worth. As for the Dodgers, well, let’s not forget that they have a bunch of prospects that are going to mature at this time, and I like the idea of ​​having Shohei Ohtani as well. He’ll only be 34, and whether he’s going to play or bat or do both, he’s going to do it better than anyone else on earth. But the story here is Baltimore. You earn this, Orioles fans.

2029: Tigers Over the Brave
So here’s a fun thing: The Tigers, who are highly motivated to get a franchise, and desperate to get a fanbase, to stick around for a very long time, have announced the signing of great free agent… Ronald Acuna Jr. ahead of the 2029 season. (This is it. How long is he currently signed with Atlanta.) He has Miguel Cabrera’s first season as Detroit MVP, but well, he ended 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 made the World Series since winning in 2021…it’s kind of a lot in life.) Acuña is a beast in the Series, and he ended up co-MVP with Rank Honor with Spencer Torkelson. Wearing a tiger hat has been the coolest thing ever since magnum b (Look it up, kids!)

2030: Angels over Veles
Well, we definitely know three of the players who will be playing in this World Championship. The Phillies will have Bryce Harper and Trea Turner, and the Angels will still be running for Mike Trout, who will be in the final year of his contract at 39. So it would be fitting that this season is that season. Some of the all-time greats finally got their championship ring – against Harper, 2012 Premier League Player of the Year to Trout’s Al Roy, and the player he was often compared to.

2031: Red Sox over Brewers
This will be far enough into the future that Red Sox fans will have an excuse to feel almost tortured and deprived by then! (Meanwhile, Brewers fans, who are as good at baseball’s most frustrated fanbase as anyone else, will roll their eyes at them.)

2032: The Guardians overtake the Reds
I don’t know who will be on those two teams in 2032, and neither do you. So if we’re going to make wild guesses, let’s make a wild guess involving the world’s longest running drought that ends last. If Cleveland wins it all in 2032, it will be 84 years since their last crown (1948). When the Red Sox went 86 years between titles, it was considered a very big deal.
