Wild Card Preview: Colorado Rockies (91-72) at Chicago Cubs (95-68)

At least the Cubs didn’t draw the Dodgers in this one, Kershaw or no Kershaw, and they don’t have to travel yet again. We can only hope the Cubs don’t feel the same frustration and cynicism about being stuck in this position that many of us do at home. I guess we can always point to the 2006 Cardinals. It’s important to remember that one of the most notable things about 2016 was that the best team actually managed to win. Given what a messy season it has been, it would be only fitting if these playoffs were equally messy, and anything can happen.
