Chicago Cubs: Are they outmatched by the Red Sox?

Could the Cubs get wins against Chris Sale and David Price? Price, most notably, has not performed well in the postseason. Sale struggled in his playoff debut in 2017. However, if they reach the World Series, let’s assume they got past their playoff woes.

Overall, I’d still have to side with Boston winning this series. The Cubs could win a one or two games, but that’s about it. Imagine watching Lester taking the mound back at Fenway and putting on one of the classic Lester performances that Cubs fans have come to know. With Cole Hamels pitching well of late, too, who knows. Maybe the Cubs could win a few games.

If the Cubs reach the World Series, I’d believe they got there because Kris Bryant came back and performed very well to put the team over the top against the rest of the teams in the NL to go with a starting rotation that we’ve seen recently emerge to an elite status. Javier Baez and Anthony Rizzo continued to help bolster the offense. And Kyle Hendricks, Lester and Hamels became a tandem that will be remembered for years to come.

Next. Amazing Grace, how sweet the swing. dark

Time will tell,but at the very least, this potential matchup would be one for the ages that we’ve all wanted to see.
