The games may take forever Joe Maddon Jersey , but they’ve been mostly thrilling. Brewers-Dodgers starts the evening with a crucial Game 5, while the Astros look to tie up with the Red Sox in Game 4."Things are sure getting interesting now, aren’t they? In the American League’s case, “interesting” isn’t necessarily “good” because it means that the Red Sox are winning their series against the Astros, 2-1, and even if the Astros come back and win this series, they just won the World Series last year, so who cares? Still, there’s something compelling (even if it takes four hours) about watching two teams who won 100+ games in the regular season duke it out with a trip to the World Series at stake.As for the National League, it’s tied at two games apiece between the Dodgers and Brewers, and on top of that, former Oriole Manny Machado seems to be doing his best to make things dramatic on the field as well. That includes much more than just playing at his usual high level, of course, since Machado is doing stuff like repeatedly sliding in weird ways into people trying to turn a double play at second base, and last night, clipping the heels of the first baseman on a routine grounder. It’s bizarre, and it resulted in Brewers players saying things like “Fuck that motherfucker.” I can’t imagine any Brewers pitcher would be stupid enough to throw at Machado in the middle of a tied playoff series in an important Game 5 Willson Contreras Jersey , but you never know. Sometimes baseball players do dumb things. See also: Machado.Last night it was the NLCS that took us into the night with an earlier evening ALCS. That order flips tonight, like so:NLCS Game 5: Brewers-Dodgers, 5:05. TV: FS1. Starters: Wade Miley (MIL), Clayton Kershaw (LAD). Series tied, 2-2ALCS Game 4: Red Sox-Astros, 8:39. TV: TBS. Starters: Rick Porcello (BOS), Charlie Morton (HOU). Red Sox lead, 2-1Though I’m still unable to handle, on a personal level, the idea of Miley having postseason success, I continue to slightly prefer the Brewers because I think it would be more interesting if they beat the Dodgers. On the other hand, Kershaw is a great pitcher and it would be nice for him if he could beat back the “can’t pitch in the postseason” narrative that has grown up around him, fairly or not.Starting lineups for the home team Dodgers:Cody Bellinger - CFJustin Turner - 3BDavid Freese - 1BManny Machado - SSMax Muncy - 2BChris Taylor - LFEnrique Hernandez - RFAustin Barnes - CClayton Kershaw - PAlthough the 2018 Orioles are decisive proof that you can’t just throw players anywhere on the diamond and succeed, the 2018 Dodgers seem to be determined to prove the opposite in this postseason. Perhaps if you have better analytics that are informing better pre-pitch positioning, that helps you get away with it.The visiting Brewers line up like so:Lorenzo Cain - CFChristian Yelich - RFRyan Braun - LFJesus Aguilar - 1BHernan Perez - 2BMike Moustakas - 3BErik Kratz - COrlando Arcia - SSWade Miley - P The Cubs head into another interleague series."There are lots of familiar faces on the Angels, even though the Cubs see them in the regular season just once every three years. Former Cubs Tommy La Stella, Trevor Cahill and Felix Pena are all on the active roster http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , along with ex-Cub minor leaguer Justin Bour. The Angels also feature several former N.L. Central rivals: Jonathan Lucroy, Matt Harvey, Zack Cozart and Albert Pujols. So it’ll be a familiar feel this weekend at Wrigley Field. Here’s hoping TLS gets a warm welcome back.We’d like to thank TLS for going 3-for-9 (all three hits home runs) against the Brewers. You can stop now, Tommy.For more on the Angels, who are riding a six-game winning streak, I asked Jessica DeLine, manager of our SB Nation Angels site Halos Heaven, to update us on her team.According to this article, Trout, who suffered a groin strain Tuesday in Anaheim, hopes to be able to play in this series.Fun factThe Cubs swept four games from the Angels in 2016, two in Anaheim and two at Wrigley Field, and outscored them 23-3 in those four contests.Pitching matchupsFriday: Cole Hamels, LHP (1-0, 5.73 ERA, 1.364 WHIP, 4.64 FIP) vs. Tyler Skaggs Kyle Hendricks Jersey , LHP (1-1, 2.45 ERA, 1.091 WHIP, 3.46 FIP)Saturday: Kyle Hendricks, RHP (0-2, 6.48 ERA, 2.640 WHIP, 7.29 FIP) vs. Chris Stratton, RHP (0-1, 6.48 ERA, 2.040 WHIP, 6.25 FIP)Sunday: Tyler Chatwood, RHP (0-0, 6.00 ERA, 1.833 WHIP, 5.76 FIP) vs. Trevor Cahill, RHP (1-1 Mike Montgomery Jersey , 3.50 ERA, 0.889 WHIP, 3.89 FIP)Times & TV channelsFriday: 1:20 p.m. CT, NBC Sports Chicago, MLB Network (outside Cubs and Angels market territories)Saturday: 1:20 p.m. CT, ABC7 ChicagoSunday: 1:20 p.m. CT, WGNPredictionThe Angels are always an enigma. Since 2009 they have neither won nor lost 90 games, except for their anomaly of a 2014 98-win season from which they were dispatched in a division series sweep by the Royals. We do thank them for sweeping the Brewers this week. On the other hand, even though they are on a six-game winning streak, that came after a 1-5 start. The Angels have won only one road game and this is their first foray outside the Pacific time zone. They also have had only one game-time temperature lower than 60. Welcome to Chicago in April, Angels!The Cubs will win this series two games to one.Up nextThe Cubs head on the road for a single series, three games against the Marlins in Miami beginning Monday evening. They will likely be happy to get out of Chicago weather for a few days.
