Cubs @ Dodgers: Quintana vs Kershaw (NLCS Game 1)

Cubs @ Dodgers: Quintana vs Kershaw (NLCS Game 1)

CHC (0-0): LHP José Quintana LAD (0-0): LHP Clayton Kershaw First pitch: 7:08pmCST (TBS) The Cubs head back to the NLCS for the third year in a row (!?), this time as the underdogs. There are a lot of reasons not to be optimistic, mostly having to do with a bullpen that seems to think that throwing strikes can cause cancer. There’s also a lot of evidence to suggest that the Cubs are a very good baseball team and a bunch of drama queens, who pull it together only when they have to.  Tags: 2017 Postseason
