Who’s gonna win the 2021 World Series? Pssh. Come on. Dodgers, bro.

If Tommy Kahnle returns to pitch for the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2021 — and he’s certainly trying to! — it would be a massive coup for a bullpen that just keeps importing solid bounce-back candidates, one after another.

But even if Kahnle doesn’t make it back to the field before next year, the signing’s still paying massive dividends.

Known for his brash personality and excessive charm, the ex-Yankee has continued his work as a streamer after leaving the Dark Side, and seems to be willing to interact with just about anyone who asks, as long as it doesn’t break his concentration.

Asked who he believes will win the 2021 World Series on a recent stream, Kahnle was as dismissively confident as you could want him to be.

Bro. C’mon. Get outta here with that stuff, bro. You already know what it is, my dude. You already know what it’s gonna be.

Can we just get this guy to throw out the ceremonial first pitch every day while he rehabs?

If the Dodgers make it to the dance again, as they should, and Kahnle’s stuck on the sidelines, you should be well aware that he’s going to be the loudest cheerleader in the building. During his Yankees days, it was said that you could hear him bleating all the way from the bullpen to home plate.

It’s a damn shame he ended up getting injured during the empty stadium season. We would’ve heard the most Kahnle we’ve ever heard.

And speaking of those Yankees, you’d better believe the righty has a specific vision for how he wants the Dodgers’ World Series victory to go.

Not sure we’d enjoy losing three games in the moment just to get to that point, but yes, that would all be worth it in the end.

Can we just sim to the regular season and cut to Kahnle’s Game 7 already?
