After back-to-back blowout victories over the Cubs, the team many considered the best in the NL, the Dodgers have every intention of ending this series on the West Coast and playing in their first NLCS in 20 years.
Friday's walk-off victory was typical of this year's Cubs, who are undaunted by adversity and confident they'll win.
While the Cubs' sale is likely to be a $1 billion transaction, all Cubs fans care about is whether the new owners will deliver a World Series champion.
Poor play. Mental mistakes. Bad luck. All were a factor as the Cubs' season came to a painful end.
