Seeing that we have CubSmurf, Iron Chef, and I mildly interested in the outcome of this series, I will make a bold prediction. Something weird will happen at some point!

I have no emotional attachment to the Dodgers, even though I live in LA.

I honestly think the Cubs are going all the way.

But I think the Bartman curse was ended in the Giants' series. After the Cubs pitcher Hendricks was hit in the pitching arm by a batted ball, the Cubs had to put in Woods. He pitched well and got the Cubs safely out of that inning, then hit a home run. And the Giants' pitcher that gave up that home run played college ball with none other than Steve Bartman.

For the record, I'm rooting for the Dodgers, but I don't think they can beat the Cubs this year. I'm not sure anybody can.

You're the one who said the Cubs will win a seven game series in three games.


I mean it's fine to be optimistic, but...

First post-season grand slam. Followed up by a solo homer. So Cubs are doing OK.
