Time to accept the inevitable, the Cubs were never going to save us.

The Yankees heard our request to not get swept, coming back to tie the American League Championship Series at two games a piece. The Cubs, unfortunately, did not — they face elimination tonight over in the National League.

First up, the Houston Astros are still in New York and are hoping to take another lead in Game 5, as Dallas Keuchel takes the mound against Masahiro Tanaka. You can watch this at 2:00 pm on Fox Sports 1.

Then the Los Angeles Dodgers hope to sweep in Chicago to advance to their first World Series since 1988...and blood is now leaking from my ears just trying to type that sentence.

You know, Cubs, it’s not like coming back from a 3-0 series deficit is that hard. Get it together.

It all comes down to Jake Arietta who will face Alex Wood at 5:00 pm on TBS. May the odds be ever in Chicago’s favor.
