Book this: Reds and Indians finally meet in the World Series for the first time ever and none of the games are played in Ohio. Only the third time they've both made the playoffs in the same season. 

 

A Cubs-White Sox world series at a neutral site would be just as weird.

The Twins have just lost their 17th consecutive playoff game!  That's the most amazing losing streak in sports history.  In theory, if you make the playoffs, you should be good enough to win a few of those games.  Most of them are against the Yankees, but this one, along with 18  were against a sub-.500 team.

That is incredible. They always say the playoffs are a crapshoot or a coin toss, and yet the Twins can't accidentally win one game. 

 

In that same vein I'm looking forward to seeing which pathetic playoff franchise wins out between the Braves and Reds. The Braves have lost 9 straight playoff matchups. The city of Cincinnati hasn't advanced in a postseason since 1995. My money is on Covid cancelling the season right before Game 3.

If past trends hold up, the Reds should win that series.

 

Since 1997, the Braves have been eliminated from the playoffs with a home loss on ten different occasions. They also lost the 2012 wild card game at home. They also were eliminated on the final day of the season in 2011 after losing and the Cardinals winning, capping a September collapse. If I remember the numbers I looked up a few weeks ago, I think the Braves are 17-28 or so in their last 45 home playoff games.

 

Which isn't as astonishing as the Twins losing 17 straight playoff games altogether, but it's pretty grim.

St. Louis huffing their magic BS again. 

Team has the opposite problem of a lot of teams(coughtwinscough), they somehow forget to show up in the regular season, but never fail to in the postseason. 

 

Poor Padres. Makes me wish Red Sox traded Mookie to them. What a team that would be. 

EDIT: Looks like I spoke too soon.
