We got playoff baseball back in Wrigley for the first time since 2018 when they lost in the wildcard round. The Marlins come to town for their first postseason series since 2003 when they captured the Fall Classic.
Marlins enter the postseason for the first time since the 2003 season in which they won the whole thing. Even though the fish barely snuck into the postseason with such a weak NL East they have a real shot at winning the pennant between young pitching and veteran hitters.
Brian Anderson was the Marlin’s best hitter during the regular season posting 11 home runs and 38 RBI’s to lead the team in each category. Anderson will need some of these veteran hitters to step it up against the better pitchers in baseball as he can’t carry this Marlins that far by himself.
Don Mattingly will send out Sandy Alcantara on the bump in game one of the series. Alcantara posted a 3-2 record with a 3.00 ERA in seven starts this season.
The Cubs will try to make it back to the World Series for the first time since 2016 when they won it in seven games versus the Indians. This David Ross’s first playoffs in his rookie season as manager of the Cubs.
As a team, Chicago scored 4.42 runs per game during the regular season ranking them 20th in the league. Collectively, the trio of Javier Baez, Kris Bryant, and Kyle Scwarber have really struggled all season long. All together those three main staples are hitting a combined .199 on the season. The Cubs will need them to get going this fall if they don’t want to see an early exit in the postseason.
David Ross announced early Wednesday morning that Kyle Hendricks will be starting in this one. Hendricks went 6-5 in the regular season with a 2.88 ERA. He was hot to start the season starting 4-0 but is 2-5 since then.

Free Miami Marlins vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
I think the Cubs are the all-around better team and get the win here. Cubbies need the get the bats going entering October if they don’t want to stop playing the game they love for the year. Marlins snuck into the playoffs thanks to a weak NL East and I think they will get crushed by a much superior team. Give me Chicago to win in a close one or a blow out it could go either way with how this lineup has been hitting.
