Well, I’m not sure. With the postseason, nobody knows anything. From the erudite baseball writer Joe Sheehan: “We’re pretty good at evaluating baseball players these days. We’re probably better at it than we’ve ever been before … What we still can’t do, however, is predict what a player will do over three games, five games, seven games, 20 games.”
Could the Braves win the 2019 World Series? Absolutely. Will they? Start flipping ye olde coin. According to FanGraphs, the best team in baseball (Houston) has a 33.1 percent chance to win the World Series, which means the Astros have a 67.9 percent chance to lose. As Sam Miller, another erudite baseball writer, is wont to say: If your choice is between the favorite and the rest of the field, your odds are better with the field.
