Gillette: The Cubs look like a team of destiny, but not even Arrieta can slow the Blue Jays high powered offense down. David Price flips his 0-5 career playoff record into an unforgettable run as Canada wins its first big 4 trophy since guess who? The 1993 Blue Jays.
Gumas: The drought is over!!! The Cubbies win! The Cubbies win! They’re young, they’re hot and they don’t know any better. Add in Arrieta and anything can happen. Theo Epstein goes down as best GM of all time breaking 2 curses of at least 86 years.
Katz: In true American fashion, money wins. The Blue Jays run of dominance since the trade deadline comes up just short, as the Dodgers historic payroll, headlined by Cy Young contenders Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke, is too much for Toronto in a 7 game series.
