Ranking every possible World Series matchup

As it stands right now, there are 25 possible World Series matchups that could come our way. Hopes and dreams die quick in October, but right now five teams on each side are still alive and fighting for a championship.

Some of them are big names from big cities — we’re talking the Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees and Atlanta Braves. There are a couple of small-market Cinderellas, like the Oakland Athletics, Milwaukee Brewers and Tampa Bay Rays.

And, let’s be real, within all that are some World Series we’d like to see more than others.

So, like we do every year, the Yahoo Sports MLB staff ranked every possible World Series matchup to figure out which ones we’d like to see most and least. Eight different writers cast ballots for this tally, and you’re not going to be shocked to see what’s on top of the list.

Wondering what it says about me that the matchup they’d like to see the most is one that would lead me to see what else is on, whereas some of the ones they’d rather not see are ones that would entertain me….
