The Dodgers winning their first World Series since 1988 was one of the few good things to come out of 2020. Getting to watch those guys that have worked so hard for so long celebrate that tough-fought victory was incredible. Despite the recency of that win, we’re always looking towards the future with this talented team.
This week, MLB writer Will Leitch took his best shot at guessing the World Series winner for the next decade. Dodgers fans will love what he has to say as he predicted that they will 3-peat over the next 2 years. After that, he doesn’t list any more World Series wins for LA in this next decade.
2021: Dodgers Over New York Yankees
Of the 2 World Series matchups, this one makes the most sense from Leitch. The Yankees are a perpetual World Series contender, and that doesn’t change heading into 2021. They still have some moves to make to get things right, but a pitching staff anchored by Gerrit Cole is bound for the postseason. New York going head-to-head with the Dodgers would be an incredibly fun matchup for the world to watch, with the two coasts going at it.
2022: Dodgers Over Los Angeles* Angels
This one might be a little bit more of a reach. Obviously, the Angels could still make a lot of moves to shore up their pitching staff by the 2022 season. But as of now, Anaheim is still a few good pitchers away from making a serious run into the postseason. If they were to meet up with the Dodgers in the World Series as they are now, it would be a blowout of epic proportions.
For what it’s worth, Leitch also did this exercise in January of 2020. He predicted that the Yankees would defeat the Braves in the 2020 World Series, so he’s been known to be wrong. The Dodgers knocked the Braves off in the NLCS while the Yankees barely got clipped by the Rays.
