Even down 2-0, this Cubs team has reminded us over and over that they are too young and talented to think about the past, or sweat the present:
If the Cubs lose this series, it isn’t about pressure, it’s about matchups and the randomness of clutch hitting in small sample sizes. The Mets have elite, hard-throwing starting pitching at bargain prices, the inverse of the Cubs’ Young Bat philosophy. In this case, pitching over hitting could tilt the series in the Mets’ favor. Next year, maybe not, but all that matters is the next three days at Wrigley Field, the place where dreams and nightmares come to life.
