Cubs And Pirates History

August 19, 2016

Certainly a possible divisional playoff opponent for the 2016 N.L. Central champions to be, the Chicago Cubs, are the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Last year the two teams that combined for something as pure as 5 straight National League Pennants (the first three, and four of five won by the Cubs) from (1906-1910), met in something as tainted as an extra game in a baseball tournament.

This year, if the season ended today, the Pirates would be in that extra game, for the 4th straight time in the 5 years of its utterly horrible existence.

The winner of that ridiculous game, now the survivor of a game in which it faced elimination, will be revitalized and on its way to Wrigley Field for game one of the best of 5 division series. That is based on today’s and likely the final regular season standings.
