History says Rays will win 2020 World Series

The Tampa Bay Rays will face off against the Los Angeles Dodgers in a historic World Series matchup. Both teams had the best record in their respective leagues and the best run differential.

The Rays’ run to the World Series has been nothing short of dramatic. They played both a Game 5 in the ALDS against the Yankees and after going up 3-0 in the ALCS, the Astros forced a Game 7.

On the daily Locked On Rays Podcast, hosts Kevin Weiss and Ulises Sambrano previewed the World Series, how Tampa Bay’s path has been historic, and how history is on their side:

Kevin Weiss: This World Series will have the best team in the AL and the best team in the NL. You can’t deny it. Both teams had the best record in their respective leagues and the best run differentials in their respective leagues. So, you can’t say it was only a 60 game season, this isn’t legitimate or anything. No, no, no, the best teams are in the final show here.

Ulises Sambrano: I really hope that it’s going to be a good series. That’s all you hope is that it’s just going to be a good series just like the Houston series was a good series, the Yankees series was a good series. I believe that this is the third team in all of baseball postseason history to have gone to five games in the LDS, seven games in the ALCS, to have won both, and the two teams that did that both won the World Series. So, hopefully, the Rays can do the same thing again, because to this point it feels like it’s been four postseasons, not one. I know it’s only been 14 games total, but when you go back to the  Blue Jays series, that seems like a month ago. I know this entire year seems like it’s been 20 years, it’s crazy, and we’re actually going to see fans in the stands, believe it or not. That’s amazing.
