My Predictions for the 2016 NLDS

Ladies and gentleman the National League Division series have been decided and only two teams stand in the way of one another fighting for one final position. The World Series. Who will take it home? Will it be the Chicago Cubs who will finally reverse the Curse of the Billy Goat and win their first World Series in over 100 years or will it be the Los Angeles Dodgers who took the Washington Nationals to the brink before finally sending them home for the long winter ahead. Will it be the Cubs who won the National League Central Division race and sent the San Francisco Giants home in the NLDS or will it be the Los Angeles Dodgers who won a decisive Game 5 on the road just two nights ago? Let’s find out.

Earlier today we looked at how the Cubs offense has done against the Dodgers Game One starter Kenta Maeda and we also checked out how the Dodgers offense has done this season against the Cubs starter Jon Lester who starts tonight for Chicago and we’ve also seen what these two teams have done against each other head-to-head this season. So who wins and how many games will it take? Boy this one is harder to call if you ask me.

I want to go with the Cubs because they are clearly the better team in almost every aspect of the game. The Cubs have a better offense, a better defense, better pitching and they are young and hungry. Can the team get the whole curse out of their minds before they become their own worst enemies though? Ultimately I think that they can but I don’t think it will be as easy as it should be for the Cubbies.

I’m taking the Cubs in the NLCS but I can see it taking six games before they do it. The Cubs have to choke away a game or two just to make it interesting, don’t they?

Get ready for your Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians World Series in 2016 ladies and gentleman.
