NLCS Preview: Dodgers vs. Cubs

by Aaron Gleeman


Dave Roberts and the Dodgers pulled out all the stops in Game 5 of the NLDS, riding Kenley Jansen and Clayton Kershaw to knock out the Nationals. Their reward?

Chicago is deep, talented, confident, rested, and ready. Los Angeles is ... well, as Dusty Baker said shortly after his Nationals were eliminated by the Dodgers: "I’d be interested to see—they won the war—but the effects of Jansen and Kershaw when they get to Chicago."

Only one way to find out!
