business news in context, analysis with attitude

In game Six of the National League Championship Series on Saturday night, the Chicago Cubs beat the Los Angeles Dodgers 5-0, winning the best-of-seven series four-games-to-two. The win sends them to the World Series for the first time since 1945, where they will try to win their first championship since 1908. They'll face off against the Cleveland Indians, who haven't won a World Series since 1948, though they went to the Fall Classic in 1995 and 1997.

Somewhere, Jake Taylor, Ricky Vaughn, Roger Dorn, Pedro Cerrano and Willie Mays Hayes presumably are smiling...though probably not entirely happy about having to face off against the Cubs, who won 103 games during the regular season this year.
