It’s been a week or so since the Chicago Cubs’ season ended in the Wild Card Game. So who should Cubs fans be rooting for as postseason baseball rolls on?
When the Chicago Cubs season first ended last week with a loss to the Colorado Rockies in the Wild Card Game, I started thinking about who I wanted to root for as the postseason continued.
First, I latched on to the Cleveland Indians, feeling sympathy for their championship drought and how they had been bounced from the NLDS after being up two games to none last season. That hope ended earlier this week when the Indians were swept by the defending champion Houston Astros.
Then, I moved on to the Atlanta Braves, from nearby my hometown in Georgia. They were a young, likable team that I could easily get behind. But after they got eliminated by the Los Angeles Dodgers, I was, once again left wondering where to turn.
So who should Cubs fans root for while they watch this postseason from home? Let’s see who we can rule out.
