2021 World Series Champions

Standard

In an eerily similar fashion to 2019 when the Washington Nationals went on an improbable run to win the World Series. The Atlanta Braves in 2021 went on a similar run from August to October. This is a franchise that went on one of the most dominant runs in sports history winning 14 consecutive division titles from 1991-2005.

2020 World Series Champions

Standard

They have been considered to be the best team in baseball in the last five seasons. Coincidentally that is the amount of time that Dave Roberts has been the manager of the Los Angeles Dodgers. They made it to the World Series in back-to-back seasons in 2017-18 and lost both times. This time the results ended up being different and it has solidified their standing in baseball.
