The result of this World Series was predicted FOUR YEARS AGO by a random dude on Twitter:
Tampa Bay Rays win the 2020 world series over the LA Dodgers 4 games to 2 #predictions #baseball #future— Ramon Alone (@ramon_alone) November 6, 2016
There’s something to refer back to if it indeed happens that way.
FWIW, the Rays are 9-5 so far in the postseason, so tacking that on to their regular-season record makes them 49-25 overall since baseball resumed. The Dodgers, who are 9-3 this postseason, are 52-20.
The last time the teams with the best records in each league made it to the World Series before now was 2013, when the Red Sox and Cardinals both had 97-65 marks.
