Check out the previous winners of World Series here.
Dodgers are the best team indeed with more chances of winning the World Series. Though this season had the Dodgers at the disastrous end, they seem to be a very good and healthy team. Yasiel Puig, Chris Taylor, Justin Turner, Enrique Hernandez, Max Muncy, Matt Kemp, Joc Pederson, David Freese all have posted an OPS of around .900 and above in the final month of the season. While Hyun-Jin-Ryu and Prize rookie Walker Buehler turned in a 1.50 ERA and 1.62 ERA respectively in the same stretch basically, proving their team to be the best.
Bagging the World Series title last year, the team is back with the key players and has also had added Gerrit Cole and Ryan Pressly to strengthen the team. Though many players had the injury through the season and only two players played in more than 140 games, the team seems to get tough healthy now.
The lineup of Yankees is dangerous, the scary strategy of this team is they are always on the verge of a multiple-run inning. Though the team might not have won many playoff games (2-1) their pitching earned them the popular tag in many 6-5 and 8-6 game.
This team won 108 games in the regular season but is positioned on fourth here, if this wonders you then their group’s ability, especially the pitching staff’s to survive the steep road to championship justifies their position. The team has got many fans especially for the Chris Sale who as the starter will take the mound in the postseason.
This team has been fantastic and won the hearts in the second half of the season. The Lefties Wade Miley and Gio Gonzalez were the pleasant surprises and also seem to be the rotation pieces on a World Series winning team. The team has got the Milwaukee’s confidence that could help in for the team in October success.
This team played 76 games with the teams that lost at least 95 games on the opposite side and went 52-24 (684) with them. And when faced the teams that haven’t lost 95 times they finished at 21-26 (.447), and now they got to beat the three great teams to win the title.
This team not just had a competitive year but has also won the division and kept from the ugly meltdown, which suffered by Phillies, a comparable team that started so well. But the last month of the year didn’t seem greatest t for the team. This team is the mixture of experience and young blood that can prove them to have still few chances to beat the best teams.
Think the ranking of this team as the 8th in among the 30 and not the last. The team though can be positioned above, if it was Kyle Freeland or German Marquez were the starters of every single game they played, only then the things would have been different for the teams.
