This magical pachinko board correctly predicted the entire postseason at the beginning of October

Predicting baseball is practically impossible as is, but doing it for the postseason is usually a downright useless task.

To be clear, the odds of this happening are 1 in 512, which is entirely bananas. We've seen amazing sports oracles before, but this inanimate object going completely perfect in October seems like the work of an metaphysical power. Also, note, this is completely real -- there's no Twitter tomfoolery afoot. It's just one really smart pachinko board.
