WOW! So it wasn’t pretty the whole way, but the Cubs won three of those NLDS games, and that means they’re headed back to the National League Championship Series!
When you talk about sustained success and wanting to be a team that people think of as “right there” every season, it’s hard to do much better than three straight trips to the NLCS.
Those are the 2015-17 Chicago Cubs, having beaten the Los Angeles Dodgers in the series last year, and they’ll face them again this year (I have no recollection of what happened in the 2015 NLCS).
Game One of the series will be in Los Angeles on Saturday at 7 pm CT, and GET-YOU-JACKED-UP will take place between now and that time.
Much more on that game, and on the games ahead soon.
Also, and obligatory: new postseason gear should come out any moment at the MLB Shop and Fanatics. If you want to be one of the first to check it out (and support BN in the process) click those links and head over.
