As the Cubs prepare for their winner-take-all Game 5 tonight against the Washington Nationals, at least one member of the teams is feeling confident that the Cubs will advance to the NLCS against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
He’s feeling VERY confident.
Carl Edwards Jr. all but guaranteed a Cubs victory tonight as he was being interviewed by reporters following the Cubs Game 4 loss which knotted the NLDS at two. Edwards has had a shaky postseason thus far after posting very solid numbers throughout the regular season. He’s 1-1 with an ERA of 19.29 and was the victim of giving up the game-tying home run to Bryce Harper in Game 2 which breathed life into a seemingly dead Nationals team.
After last night’s 5-0 defeat, Edwards reassured reporters (and Cubs fans) that the team has been in this winner-take-all position before and that the team would be locked in and ready to go.
And just for good measure, he implied this wouldn’t be the last time that reporters would have the chance to talk to him this postseason.
Check it out.
