Tweet Follow me This is a really nutty, off the wall, from this blogger’s head prediction: the World Series will feature the Cincinnati Reds and the Oakland A’s. Why? Well, as this is written, the Oakland A’s are one loss from elimination in the ALDS, and that game is on Tuesday of this week. But this is the same team that had 14 walk-off home run wins this year.

Tweet Follow me The Texas Rangers become one of just five teams in American League Championship Series history since 1969 to win back to back ALCS series (the other teams were the Baltimore Orioles, Oakland Athletics, New York Yankees, and the Toronto Blue Jays), and return to the World Series.
