The NLCS begins tonight as the Dodgers and Cubs battle for the National League pennant. The Dodgers will be attempting to erase a nasty 28-year World Series drought. Meanwhile the Cubs are trying to erase a century of mythological losing. It’s the Dodgers job to steal the show and make sure the Cubs and their fans are miserable. Hopefully for another 108 years. I know that many people will be pulling for the Cubs to break the curse and the longest championship drought in professional sports. They’ll be doing it mostly because people want to see something they’ve never seen before, and nobody has seen the Cubs win a world series unless you were old enough to be on the titanic.
Unfortunately for Chicago and Cubs fans the Dodgers are going to have to keep the curse of the billy goat alive. That’s what I am counting on here, for the curse to come into play. Something hopefully will go wrong and the Cubs will Cubs this series up. When that happens it will benefit the Dodgers and they will advance to the World Series.

For some reason the Dodgers added Mendoza line hitter and automatic out Kike Hernandez to the roster. The guy was atrocious all season long and I am still at a loss as to why they would put him on the roster or play him over Chase Utley. However if he does well then I will give him his kudos. Carlos Ruiz gets the start behind the plate in place of the slumping Yasmani Grandal. The Dodgers have Yasiel Puig in right field and batting cleanup. Howie Kendrick is in left field batting lead-off and Joc Pederson hits eighth.
The Dodgers will give the ball to Kenta Maeda. The Japanese right hander got roughed up in his only postseason start in the NLDS against Washington. The Dodgers are hoping he can give them something better this time around.
Here are the lineups for both clubs
NLCS Game 1
Kenta Maeda-16-11 vs. Jon Lester-19-5
Game Time – 5PM PST – TV-FS1
Lester career vs. Dodgers 2-2 3.06 ERA-Postseason record -7-6 2.63 ERA
Lester vs. Dodgers
The Dodgers have been feckless against Lester in the past. I think a key for the Dodgers may be the running game. If they can get guys on base they need to move them. Lester has a serious problem with throwing to first base or picking off base runners.
Please don’t be feckless Dodgers.
