- Predicting the World Series result is one thing.
- Predicting the exact World Series result down to the number of games, five years in advance is truly unbelievable.
- That’s exactly what this baseball fan did and people are losing their minds.

To predict the exact teams that will be playing in the World Series before the season begins is impressive. To predict the exact result of the World Series prior to the season is even more impressive, like Jomboy Media’s Trevor Plouffe did this year.
Atlanta Braves over the Houston Astros in 6.

However, to predict the exact result of the World Series more than five years in advance is downright insane. The only explanation is witchcraft or time travel.
Well, a baseball fan by the name Cole Rogers did just that.

Haters might speculate that this is fake because anyone can post a screenshot. Sure, but Rogers’ physical tweet was sent on Oct. 25, 2016, 1,835 days before the Atlanta Braves beat the Houston Astros in six games to win the 2021 World Series.
And, to my knowledge, there is no way to post a tweet in the past.
To make things even crazier, Rogers didn’t just throw out the Yankees and the Dodgers. He didn’t go with two teams from the nation’s biggest media markets, and he didn’t go with two teams with the biggest bankrolls.
Sure, Houston and Atlanta isn’t Oakland, per say. But in the year that Rogers predicted this year’s World Series result, the Braves went 68-93 and the Astros went 84-78. And this year, an 88-win team won it all.
That all goes to say that it wasn’t a particularly “safe” prediction.
In response to the remarkable (and very lucky) prophecy, the internet went bananas:
