Can I get odds on Royals-Cubs next year? I think I may bet a dollar on that one and then retire when I'm right.

Didn't you see Back to the Future II? The 2015 World Series is between the Cubs and the Miami Alligators.

Wow, the '85 Royals have skyrocketed up in percentage since this quiz was reset, my guess is they will slowly go back down to around 20%

I'm slightly annoyed that MLB hasn't moved the Miami Marlins to the American Leauge (why not switch them with the Tampa Bay Rays?) for at least the 2015 season to get the Miami/Cubs World Series Back to the Future II promised us back in 1989. It's not like there's no precedent: the Brewers switched to the NL from the AL in 1998, 2-years ago the Astros left the NL for the AL. So why couldn't MLB and its new commissioner have given us this one thing? We don't really ask for much!

Thanks, fixed. Added that column last night after the game. Maybe I should have waited until the morning.

Atlanta sticking it to the MLB suits (in the best way possible) for cynically ripping away the All Star game. "I guess we'll just have to win the whole thing then..." :-)

If you know them all 100% by heart and can type 1 name every 4 seconds without a single mistake, you got this. Best to take it untimed honestly.

The fact that 58% of people missed the 93 Blue Jays is kinda sad. It's impossible to forget the ending, and the call.

Aw man… I feel like everyone would’ve been happier if the Phillies won. Can’t say that the Astros didn’t outplay them, though. No-hitter in game 4 and a much better field game in game 5.

Typing in "Astros" works for boxes that should be "Athletics".

The Athletics are commonly called the "A's", so typing as works. Quizmaster would get tarred and feathered if he didn't accept A's for Athletics ;)

Yes but I was copy-pasting the full word "Astros," not typing it in letter by letter. I would expect "As" to work; I wouldn't expect "Astros."

As an Orioles fan, I'd like to see this quiz go back to '66.
