Recapping the Head-to-Head NLDS Matchups from 2016

Now it’s time for the National League to have their time to shine here on the blog as yesterday we looked at the head-to-head matchups for the four teams currently in the ALDS. Now we shift to the NLDS that gets kick started tonight with those matchups from 2016. All that and about $15 gets you a beer inside Dodger Stadium these days but it’s still interesting to look at anyway as long as you don’t put much stock into this. They call it the second season for a reason.

San Francisco Giants vs. Chicago Cubs in 2016:

Los Angeles Dodgers vs. Washington Nationals in 2016:

Rk Date Tm Opp R RA Win Loss Save
Rk Date Tm Opp R RA Win Loss Save
72 Monday, Jun 20 LAD WSN 4 1 Kershaw Petit Jansen
73 Tuesday, Jun 21 LAD WSN 3 2 Coleman Roark Jansen
74 Wednesday, Jun 22 LAD WSN 4 3 Hatcher Kelley
95 Tuesday, Jul 19 LAD @ WSN 8 4 Kazmir Lopez
96 Wednesday, Jul 20 LAD @ WSN 1 8 Gonzalez Norris
97 Thursday, Jul 21 LAD @ WSN 6 3 Liberatore Strasburg Jansen

I’m sorry goes out to the San Francisco Giants and their fans but no one is stopping the Chicago Cubs in the National League playoffs. Too much youth, too much talent and too good of a coach and manager to let this one slip away. Cubs to the NLCS.

Cubs in four

The Dodgers have never impressed me much in the playoffs during my life period and I can’t see them doing so this postseason. Their postseason hinges on the left arm of Clayton Kershaw and unless he is able to find and flick the switch that is turned off every time he takes a mound in the postseason then it could be a long series for the Dodgers.

Nationals in five.
