Nate Silver seems to think that's the most likely scenario.

Pretty big Sox/Cubs trade this morning- Jose Quintana to the Cubs for a handful of prospects (highlighted by Eloy Jiménez and Dylan Cease).
"Next, we are going to solicit the children of strangers so that we can go on a ride designed for children. This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

So the Dodgers have joined a small list of teams to get to the World Series with one loss or less since the start of the LDS era since started in 1995 (I think). Only 7 teams have have done that. However the combined record for the 7 teams is 3-4. Here's the list of the 7 teams.
1. 1995 Braves: 1 loss, won WS 4-2
2. 1999 Yankees: 1 loss, won WS 4-2
3. 2005 White Sox: 1 loss, won WS 4-0
4. 2006 Tigers: 1 loss, lost WS 1-4
5.2007 Rockies: 0 losses, lost WS 0-4
6. 2014 Royals: 0 losses, lost WS 3-4
7. 2016 Indians: 1 loss, lost WS 3-4
8. 2017 Dodgers: 1 loss, lost WS 3-4
So it's now 3-5.

Looks like the MLB wants to add a team in Montreal and Portland and expand to 32 teams. This expansion however will not only trigger an realignment but bring other major changes to the sport. The realignment itself would cut the total number of divisions to 4 and bring an end to the AL and NL. The number of games would also but reduced to 156.
Here's what the new 4 8 team divisions would look like after the realignment.
East: Atlanta, Baltimore, Cincy, Miami, Philly, Pittsburgh, Tamba and Washington
North: Boston, Cleveland, Detroit, Minnesota, Montreal, NYY, NYM and Toronto
Midwest: CHC, CHW, Colorado, Houston, KC, Milwaukee, St. Louis and Texas
West: Anaheim, Arizona, LA, Oakland, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle
Here's a link that will explain more about this.

God, I'd love this. Nothing would make me happier than for MLB to do this, expand to 32 teams and get rid of the separate leagues which I'm sure would mean the designated hitter would be implemented league-wide and we'd no longer have to listen to smug purists talk about the "superior strategy" that goes along with having an automatic out at the bottom of every team's batting order.
