You May Say I’m A Dreamer


The best part of every winter is that when it ends, fans of every team can talk themselves into a World Series title in the coming season. Yankee fans and Astro fans alike can look at the coming season and imagine pieces falling into place for a championship run. Sure, it’s easier for some teams than it is for others, but without tallies in the loss column it’s at least possible for everyone to do. 

In that spirit, we here at The Outside Corner are using the end of the winter to take a long look at each team and what it would take for them to win the World Series. Each post is written from the perspective of October, when the club is basking in the glow of the Commissioner’s Trophy. There are plenty of things that could go wrong and for 29 of these teams, they will. At this time of year, though, it’s more fun to imagine what can go right.
