or…Neumann: What, your team worry?
2013: Texas Rangers
Rangers def. Chicago Cubs, 4-3
Albert Pujols, in the second season of a 10-year, $365 million contract, enjoys a career year with 59 homers and 155 RBIs and carries the Cubs to their first Fall Classic appearance in 68 years. However, after three consecutive postseason disappointments, it’s Texas that rewards the loyalty of its fans with a championship. Adrian Beltre, Nelson Cruz and Josh Hamilton power a balanced Texas offense, but resurgent pitchers A.J. Burnett and John Lackey share World Series MVP honors after throwing two shutouts each.
2026: Colorado Rockies
Rockies def. Minnesota Twins, 4-3
Resurgent veterans Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki combine to drive in 20 runs and lift Colorado to its first World Series title. Game 7 is finally played on Dec. 1 after multiple snow postponements in both Denver and Minneapolis. President Tim Tebow welcomes the Rockies to the White House after the series, which conveniently culminates two days before Tebow must return to the Broncos following their bye week.
2036: Andromeda Galaxy Quasars
Quasars def. Chicago Cubs, 4-3
A reincarnated Ted Williams hits .407 during the regular season, becoming the first major leaguer to top the .400 plateau since he did it in his previous life, 95 years earlier. Playing on a massively muscular animatronic body modeled after Barry Bonds, Williams hits six home runs in Games 4-7 as the Quasars rebound from losing the first three games and win the first World Series title after the intergalactic merger. With two outs in the bottom of the ninth in Game 7, superagent Trent Boras announces that client Alex Rodriguez Jr. will opt out of his contract with the New Jersey Yankees.
