If anything, the Dodgers have the Cubs right where it wants them: down 3-2 in the series on the road. They wouldn't want to have it any other way, right? I mean, who wouldn't want to face Clayton Kershaw, the best baseball pitcher on the planet? Rich Hill would be waiting to pitch Game 7. He shut the Cubs down in game three. The Dodgers should have absolutely no pressure on them. Everyone expected this series to be cake walk for Chicago.
The last time the Cubs had a chance to advance to the World Series was in 2003. They blew a 3-2 series lead thanks to Steve Bartman, whom they blamed for losing. Dodgers’ manager Dave Roberts must let Kershaw pitch as long as he can. With Kershaw pitching, the Dodgers have a better chance of winning. The bullpen is unreliable, except for closer Kenley Jenson. All the pressure is on the Cubs at Wrigley. Will the Cubs turn the page and reach its first World Series since 1945? Or will the Dodgers force a Game 7 and be part of the curse?
