The National League Championship Series is set after the Chicago Cubs earned their spot the other day and the New York Mets won tonight.
It's been a long time since these two teams have been in a playoff and even longer since they have made it this far. I did not see this match coming but it will be interesting. I think the Mets are the better team but I will be rooting for the Cubs.
The pitching was great for the Dodgers, and the Cardinals are an offensive power but neither could pull out enough wins to advance. I didn't have time to catch enough of the games to give any in depth analysis but it was such a bad football night with the Falcons and the Wildcats losing that I only want to write about baseball.
Tomorrow night kicks off the ALCS and Saturday we'll get to watch both series in action. As it gets closer to the World Series, the excitement steadily grows!
