Houston fans weren’t the only ones who knew their team could win the 2017 World Series; Sports Illustrated predicted it on its cover back in 2014.
At that point in time, Houston had lost more than 100 games for three straight years. That cover read “Your 2017 World Series Champs,” and featured a picture of George Springer in an Astros jersey.
Sports Illustrated reminded everyone of it’s prediction on Twitter last night.
Not only did the Astros take the World Series last night with a 5-1 win over the Dodgers in Game 7, Springer was named Series MVP!
Nailed it, SI!
