Sports Illustrated called the 2017 World Series — three years ago

(CNN)Maybe Sports Illustrated should start predicting the stock market.

It may not seem like a bold pick the day after the young and talented Astros upset the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 7 to win the first title in franchise history.
But in June 2014, when SI put the team on its cover, readers probably thought they were crazy. The Astros, the worst team in baseball the previous season, were in last place.
    “We settled on 2017 because the Astros’ young nucleus would by then be reaching its prime,” SI’s Ben Reiter wrote last week. “It was certainly a long shot, but so is everything in baseball.”
    Maybe this will break the notorious Sports Illustrated cover jinx, which inexplicably causes many teams and athletes to stumble after appearing on its cover.
    We now eagerly await SI’s prediction for the 2020 presidential election.
