2020 World Series matchups we’d love (or hate) to see

1. White Sox vs. Padres
Doolittle Classic Score: 20.21
Odds: 3.4%

Here are 10 reasons this is the World Series we want in 2020:

10. Fernando Tatis Jr. and Luis Robert: Seeing the two most dynamic players in the majors on center stage would be the perfect finish to this bittersweet season. Colleague Sam Miller just ranked them as the first (Tatis) and third (Robert) most exciting players in the game (with Juan Soto squeezed in between).

9. New aces. Chicago’s Lucas Giolito has solidified himself as one of the best starters in the majors, averaging 12.2 K’s per nine innings and holding batters to a .187 average. Meanwhile, Dinelson Lamet has become perhaps San Diego’s No. 1 starter, relying on a fastball that averages 97 mph and maybe the most unhittable slider in the game. He’s averaging 12.0 K’s per nine and has lowered his ERA to 2.12.

White Sox/Padres is the sexy pick, but I'm also pulling for Dodgers/Twins. Two teams that haven't won in it in 30 years, lots of dingers, good bullpens, good fanbases (even in absentia), fun players, and a re-match of the '65 Series.
