Ideally, the teams with two best records in their sport meet in the championship to stake claim as the best in the world. With a playoff format that can oftentimes take a month and prevent such a scenario from happening, the two best records in MLB actually clashed in the National League Division series last season.

Despite all the typical turnover of…
