Sports Illustrated may have predicted the future.
Back in 2014, after the Houston Astros finished in last place in their division for three years in a row, Sports Illustrated made a bold prediction on the cover of its June 30 issue. SI predicted that the Astros were building towards a championship – one that would come in 2017.
Well, they’re four wins away.
Houston won 101 games this past year, finished first in the AL West and will have a chance to win it all against the Los Angeles Dodgers this week.
Here’s the cover, which SI is pretty pumped about.
