From 1993 to 2017, the world of baseball has seen some dramatic turnaround. Looking at the world series alone, it is hard to remember that the Atlanta Braves were the world series winners in 1995 and 1996. Back in the day that wouldn’t seem too crazy because they even won the world series back in 1992. But now, it would be considered lucky for them to even get into the world series, let alone win the thing. Even the Astros, who won in 2017, had yet to win a world series since who remembers when. But these things always seem to happen in sports. As a football fan too, I remember how crazy it was that Leicester City had won the Premier League title, and even went to the quarter finals of the Champions League the next season. You rarely see such turnaround in teams that are considered the better ones, but this only seems to happen in Football and Baseball, which is part of the reason I love baseball so much.
I’m really looking forward to seeing the Mets in 2019 more than anything however. I’m not a fan of the team, and there is a part of me that would like to see them lose more than they currently are, but they still have a good team that I think can still entertain. Another team that I have been surprised about are the Astros. The face that they even made it to the world series in 2017 was amazing, especially winning the thing. It is so rare to see that type of upset in the baseball field now, and I really would like to see them go all the way again next year. They had such a great roster too.
Thank you for reading, and I hope this post was a bit of a home run for you! I hope you are all doing well!
