Chicago Cubs: Ranking all postseason series since 1984
Cubs History: There have been 14 different postseason series that the Cubs have played in since 1984.
Cubs History: It was 1969 when the postseason turned into a multi-round playoff system, and it took until 1984 for the Chicago Cubs to make their first NLCS-era postseason appearance. Since 1984 the Cubs have made the postseason 10 times and have participated in 14 multi-game series. That number of postseason series doubled from 2015-2017. Keep in mind this does not count Wild Card games.
In those 14 series, the Cubs are 6-8 with four of those series wins coming in 2015-2016. How do all of these series stack up against each other? We will be ranking each of these 14 series from worst to best. Criteria for these rankings include performance and overall success in the series. So while some series ended in great heartbreak like the 2003 NLCS, it will be ranked higher than the likes of the 2015 NLCS, which saw the team get swept. (Mini spoiler alert)
This list is, of course, very arbitrary and up for much debate, but this is what we came up with. Here are the 14 Cubs postseason series ranked against each other.
