Can a baseball team really win the World Series without winning an NBA title?
- by admin
A few years ago, I wrote a piece about how a team could take a run at winning the World Cup.
The World Series has proven to be a more elusive prize, especially as the MLB has become less competitive.
In my piece, I noted how the Los Angeles Dodgers have made it to the World’s Series twice in five years, but that was before the advent of technology and analytics that made it possible for them to win the series more than once.
Since then, the Dodgers have gone from two straight World Series appearances to three straight to four straight World Championships, and now, they’re going to take the first one off the table with the win against the Los Cucos this Sunday.
I have to admit, I was a little disappointed in that prediction, as I thought that the Dodgers would finish with a record of five World Series wins and finish the season with a World Series win.
Instead, they’ve won three of the last four World Series, and they’ll finish with two more World Series crowns to go.
So, why does this matter?
Because I think the Dodgers will have a great chance to make the World Championship for the first time since the 1996 and 1999 seasons, when the Dodgers won it all and the NBA Finals.
The Dodgers have never won the World Cups in a decade, and that’s a good thing.
But, in the eyes of the fan base, they have to be better than the rest of the NBA.
And, when you lose to the Warriors in the Finals, that hurts your chances of getting to the finals.
If the Dodgers lose to a team with a winning record in the regular season and a losing record in postseason play, then they’re not going to make it.
That’s not to say they’re the greatest team in the league, but they’re close.
So, how can the Dodgers make the postseason without winning a title?
The Dodgers have one of the most consistent winning streaks in baseball.
After winning the NL West, the team made it all the way to the divisional round of the postseason with a 12-4 record.
With the playoffs coming up, they were tied with the Dodgers for the best record in baseball, but lost in the first round.
They ended up in the conference finals where they lost to the Cubs in seven games.
That team had a winning streak of 21 games, which included a series sweep of the White Sox in the ALDS.
What’s more, the best regular season record in MLB last year was the San Francisco Giants with a 22-11 record.
In the playoffs, they won the division and then lost to both the Cardinals and the Cubs.
How many of those playoff wins have the Dodgers lost to teams that didn’t even make the playoffs?
It’s possible that the two-year streak was a fluke.
However, that’s not a very realistic expectation for this team, and the only team in baseball that could make the playoff without winning the title would be the New York Yankees.
We know that the Yankees won their first three games in the postseason, but then had to go win two of the three to advance to the AL East final.
So, the Yankees have to win a lot of games to make a playoff run.
Then, in a weird way, the Mets are the other team in sports that could go through a two-season stretch without winning their first World Series title.
While the Mets went from the second wild card spot to the final spot, they also lost to Boston, Chicago and Detroit in the playoffs.
The team went 14-5 in the wild card slot.
Even with a losing streak of two straight seasons, the Giants should still be considered the favorites to make an appearance in the World Championships if the Dodgers are a bit too much for the Mets to handle.
