Sucks that 2 of 3 best teams in baseball are already eliminated.  Awesome that the 1 survivor was the Cubs!

My two least favorite teams in the NL have always been the Dodgers and the Mets; not sure why but they are.  Behind the Cardinals, my favorite NL team is the Cubs.  I've been to Wrigley for games probably 6-7 times and love the place.  Here's hoping they break the curse and win it all this year.

Congrats to the Cubs. I think they are a fun team to watch. Disappointed in the way things went with the Redbirds, but the Cubbies just played better.

I'm happy for the city of Chicago that the Cubs are tasting some postseason success. The team shows patience at the plate and they play good defense for being so young.

Cubs vs Mets.

Lester vs Harvey in game 1.

Should be a fun series.

Harvey was good last night.

Cubs did have some hard hit balls against him.

Schwarber has now hit a homerun in three straight October games.

Arrietta is human I guess.  that's two consecutive games he has allowed runs. 

I think the Mets may be the team of destiny this year.  You just never know. Murphy is this year's version of Matt Carpenter.  Can't hit a HR off a lefthander and hits two off kershaw in the playoffs, hits another off Grienke and then tonight hits one off Arietta.  Dude is playing like superman.

All the Mets needed was a little offense to take them from pretty good to very good. Their pitching is pretty dang deep. I'd put their starting rotation right there with the Cardinals.

Shea is long gone. New stadium called Citi field.  but I know what you mean. 

Dodgers had same issue.  They led the NL in HRs but struggled in post season vs stellar pitching. I still believe the old adage that good pitching beats good hitting.  The Mets definitely have good pitching.

That would have been an RBI double in the 8th when Denorfia walked.  But the ump took a very low pitch and called strike three.  Garbage call when the Cubs need any help they can get.

National League games have been much more competitive in the LCS. The Cubs have at least been in each game, unlike the other series. Seems like with the exception of game 2 one team dominated the other.

As a Red Sox fan of course I remember that 2004 series. But I don't see the Cubs pulling it off. Mets aren't going to lose four straight. Though I will allow it would be funny to see BOTH teams from NY pull off that dubious feat. lol

That Mets pitching staff showed Chicagoans, what Gun Control really is. They had the young guns baffled and were really the difference. I'm really amazed that Lester and/or Arrieta were limited to a start apiece in this series.

Don't think that's it at all. I think it's as simple as 2 things. They are young and streaky, and the mets pitching was great. Oh and Daniel Murphy, so I guess 3 things.

So they want to improve their regular season but chaulk up that many L in post season?  Price and wrigley might not be the best combo.  Maddon and Price might try to make it happen though.

We may have the best lineup top to bottom in the Bigs for the next few years, my worry is that Arrieta wont be able to repeat what he did this year and we wont quite have enough pitching, I do like our Bullpen though.

I doubt anyone repeats the stretch Arrieta had in the second half this year. If  he can keep command of his fastball next year, he'll be fine. His slider and curve are top–notch.

I expect the Cubs to add a big arm this offseason to bolster their starting rotation.

Szczur is raking to begin the year.  If he can keep that up all year, this lineup is absolutely loaded from top to bottom with very capable reserves.  Looking GREAT so far.

he has been great thus far, I doubt he stays this hot but its nice to see. Why has he started over Soler and Schwarber anyway, are they banged up? Schwarbers defense and Solers bat not getting it done?

Soler was in the DH spot the last two games.

Schwarber did start one of the games. I'm assuming he sat out the second game due to the left handed pitcher they faced.

you are right, I went stupid for a sec. I even remember arguing about the DH rule with my buddy who is a Royals fan while Soler was batting.

Either way, if Szczur's bat can remain even half this productive it would play huge dividends in Inter-League play and against leftys.
