LET'S GO TRIBE'S 2014 NLCS PREVIEW

-

Sure, whichever of these teams advances will likely be demolished by the sudden juggernaut that is the Kansas City Royals offense, but  an NL pennant is still a nice thing, so they might as well try for it. These two franchises are currently tied for the NL lead with 19 World Series appearances apiece, so an even 20th is on the line.

Adam Wainwright and Madison Bumgarner are the two best pitchers still playing this season, so this looks to be a great duel.... which means it'll probably be an 8-6 game.
