I dunno...the Cubbies are awfully good. We'll see what happens with Kershaw in Game 6. I love my Dodgers, but if not them, I'd have no problem seeing the Cubs advance.

Or, as we say, ANYONE but the Giants.

I really thought they'd start Kershaw but honestly the guy they did start did a lot better than I thought he'd do. And the Cubs were driving me crazy by getting two runners on base with no outs and then just popping or striking out. But finally they got something going and the flood gates opened up. Still they almost let the Dodgers back in it. Chapman just doesn't seem to pitch well in relief when it's not an official save.

Games 2 and 3: 0 runs
Games 4 and 5: 18 runs

I suspected that once the Cubs started hitting, the Dodgers wouldn't be able to stop them.

I doubt even Kershaw can stop them now.

Unfortunately, my guys came up short. But no team more deserving than the Cubbies to go all the way. I'll be pulling for them!

First pennant since 1945. Possibly the first championship since 1908?

Yeah, it's been long enough. Go Cubs!

It feels very strange to wake up and realize the Cubs are actually playing in the World Series.
