Yes, you read the title correctly. The Mets & Cubs will be participating in the NLCS starting this Saturday. It’s not what everyone expected but its one that everyone will enjoy. The Mets & Cubs beat the odds and advanced to the round that most fans did not anticipate they would. The Cubs lack of success for a very long time now is well documented. The Mets in their own right have a recent history that isn’t much better and this is why most MLB fans are happy to see this series take place. I for one am happy to see the ‘other’ teams from New York and Chicago get a chance to represent there state like their fellow natives more often do. The Mets & Cubs deserve this shot and we have a great series to watch.
My Prediction: I’m taking the Mets in this series because I am a super fan of their pitching staff. They have a very strong group of young aces and good mix of veteran relievers. Since the Allstar break, after making a few moves, their bats have come to life. Early in the season the young pitching staff was worn out from trying to stay in games as the team provided little to no offense. Things have changed and the Mets now are very confident and have a fight in them that they did not have in the early half of the season. #LGM
