3 Reasons to think the Cubs can come back

I am 100% writing this article so I can feel better about the Cubs chances as the season hangs in the balance.

1. STARTERS FOR GAME 5,6,7

Nobody I would rather having throwing for us right now than Lester. Battled tested lefty with a 1.69 ERA this postseason. Bauer is probably better than he threw in game 2, I just can’t see him getting to comfortable at Wrigley with the Cubs season on the line. Arrieta was as close to his old self as we’ve seen in months his last time out. Tomlin did enough in game 3, but hopefully the Cubs head to Cleveland with some momentum.(Also would get Schwarbs back in the lineup, so that’s nice). Then game 7  I think we could just throw out all baseball knowledge. On paper it’s obviously Kluber and you have to respect the man, but this is an article for hope. GAME 7 IS A TOSS UP.

2. TWO GAME SLUMPS BODE WELL FOR CUBS

After getting shutout by the dodgers in games 2 and 3 the Cubs offense exploded the rest of the series. The Cubs have scored just 2 runs in their last 2 games against Cleveland. The Cubs have just 1 long ball this series and have struggled with men on base. Bryant’s been all over the place this series and Javy may have swung at every pitch he saw last night.  After watching this team for 162 games that has to change Right?Maybe? Can a kid dream?

3. THIS IS HOW THE DROUGHT MUST END

I have talked this into my head so much the last couple of hours. A curse as large as the Cubs drought has to be broken in storybook fashion. A sweep of the Indians wouldn’t do justice to the years of agony. Boston had to overcome and 0-3 deficit to just get to the Series.Hell even Cleveland faced their last bit of agony before the Cavs stormed back against Golden State. Chicago has been the front runner from day one, a comeback from being down 3-1 is the perfect way to end the script for the Cubs 30 for 30. This is the situation we would have never wanted, but it just might be the situation we need.
