Everyone picks the Cubs except 1. Still, I think the Dodgers have a good chance for an upset with Lowe, Billingsley, and Manny.

The Dodgers have the best pitching in the NL and a pretty good offense since Manny joined them.

Even though the Cubs do have the better record I certainly would not consider it an upset if the Dodgers win this series.

You know, I was Wrigleyville the other day -- nice place. If only Cubs fans weren't so awful to other teams....

Either way, I say the Cubbies take this series pretty easily. Then lose to the Brew Crew, who fall to the Halos in the WS.

And when the Cubs played the Dodgers earlier this year the Dodgers were not at full strength. Dempster has pitched excellent this past season ,but he's due for a bad outing. And their is a lot of pressure on him. He said the Cubs are going to the World Series at the start of the season.
I pick Dodgers in 4.

I love that two sets of douchebag fans will enter and only one set of douchebag fans will come out

And to be fair, can't we all agree that Red Sox fans are the douchiest?

No kidding. Its packed full of non-Cubs/Dodgers fans ready to troll. Of course its ironic that they are the "douchebags" that they've come to the thread to complain about.

I got Cubs in 4. They'll win games 1 and 2 at home. Lose game 3 in LA and take game 4 in LA. Mark it down.

Cubs in Five!

Spoiler:
Is one of my favorite songs: http://www.archive.org/download/tmg2...d1t13_64kb.mp3
(not the best recording, and I'm sure I'll be mocked )

I just want the Cubs to win.

In 3 would be great because it would be less stressful.

4 would not be bad but not as good a 3.

5, my cardiologist might get two weeks in Waikiki off of my medical bills.

I like your dedication to taking this sports forum as seriously as possible.

Just because my teams lost a combined 291 games this year doesn't mean I lose my voice, dammit.

I need Cubs to win game 3 on Sat. I'm having 30 people over that day for my housewarming/Cubs party and I can't let it become a bummer.

That's funny I need the Dodgers to win because this guy i know in the Midwest is having this huge party and invited like 30 friends over and there would be nothing better in my eyes to have the Dodgers spoil the party for him and his friends. that would be a great housewarming party.

All and All i just hope the dodgers don't go 3 and out like they have in every other playoff series since 88(except for their 1 win in 04).



Lets Go Dodgers
