Chicago Cubs fans must understand – this remains the Golden Age
2 of 5
There were flashes of that 2016 team, and the never quit, never say die attitude lived on through the end. A tumultuous five-game series against the Nationals, which if anything, showed tremendous heart even if it ultimately showed their glaring flaws.
Down 3-0 in the NLCS to the Dodgers, Wade Davis capped off a gritty six-out save, his second multiple-inning save of the postseason.
Though few believed they could really come back down 3-1, who are we to really ever question the Cubs?
After what they have put us through.
Yes, the same franchise which tortured generations of fans is the same team that just snapped a five-game winning streak in elimination games. Three of those wins coming in the 2016 World Series.
