But Cubs-Mets? The storied rivalry of these clubs? Two of the major media markets? Winner goes to the World Series? This NLCS will knock the cover off the ball and will be an absolute ratings bonanza.
The idea alone that Chicago's beloved Cubs have a chance to win their first World Series since 1908 would make this must-watch baseball. But throw in the Mets, who haven't won it all since 1986 and have captured New York's hearts once again this season, and this could be downright historic.
In the ALCS, the Royals haven't won it all since 1985 and the Blue Jays (with a fanbase of the entire country of Canada) since 1993, will showcase their contrasting styles of speed (Royals) and power (Blue Jays) in a series sure to garner tremendous attention. Both teams have long-suffering fan bases ready to burst at the prospect of a World Series appearance.
The two championship series can make this a classic fall to remember.
