Chicago-There used to be no champagne celebrations like a bear. In view of the unique nature of this season, the carpet in the visitor clubhouse of the rate field is guaranteed to be protected from heavy rain, and plastic sheets are not required to protect the lockers.
Perhaps this is appropriate for this Cubs team, because, as they did on Saturday night, winning the National League Central Championship is just the next step towards a bigger goal. Now, the Cubs can start to concentrate on bringing another World Series trophy to the fans on the north side.
• Box score
“We are very happy to make the playoffs,”
The Cubs won their first division championship in three years, even before they lost to the White Sox 9-5. The Brewers’ victory over the Cardinals in St. Louis made the Cubs the 2020 NL Central Champion and made Chicago third in the playoffs.
As the third prize winner of NL (second only to the Dodgers and Braves (2)), the Cubs will host the Wild Card Series at Wrigley Field starting Wednesday. The Marlins, Cardinals, Redskins and Brewer will all become the sixth seed that the Cubs will face.
Cubs manager David Rose said: “It’s hard to quantify how proud I am of these guys.” “I don’t even know what to say. This is just a special situation, and I am grateful to have such an excellent team. Team and top-down support.”
Saturday’s final score is more important than anything, but some elements are symbolic.
Lefty Leonty Jon Lester is on the mound, Ross is on the canoe. Both of them joined the Cubs in 2015, when the rebuilding of the team began and people began to accept expectations.
Of course, these are all part of the historic 16th World Series victory, which ended the Cubs’ 108-year championship drought. Four years later, the remaining core of this team-some uncertain future with the club-is still struggling to chase the elusive second ring.
Cubs outfielder Kyle Schwarber said before Saturday’s game: “We don’t want to be famous just for breaking the curse.” “We want to keep doing this.”
Kobe agreed that the core of this Cubs team is not just famous for a magical season.
“It’s hard to get rid of this,” Bryant said, “just because the story around the team in 2016 is-it didn’t win the championship forever. So it’s hard to get rid of this. But if you can continue to win and be on the board Win more championships, and you can get out of trouble.
“This year, I am very happy to be in the playoffs. I certainly think that in the end, no matter who wins, it will be legal, because everyone is going through the same situation. So, take advantage of a weird season and be on the board. One more season would be a good choice.”

Rose also knows that all these are in the hearts of his players.
Ross said earlier this week: “I know that leaving a legacy is important to them. They have left the legacy they should be proud of because they brought this organization there.
“I know they want to end the game with one hand and achieve strong results. This is a group that will keep in touch for the rest of their lives.”
The Cubs won the division championship in 2016 and won the division championship again in 2017, but this is the last time Chicago has raised the central banner.
When the young upstart Cubs (Cubs) won 97 games in 2015 and began to climb the summit of baseball, the players hoped that a series of championships were coming. They entered the NL Championship Series for three consecutive years (’15-17), but the Cubs lost the game in the NL Wild Card Game in ’18 and did not make the playoffs last season.
“In 2015, we are very happy to be in the playoffs,” Rizzo said. “Since 16 years, this is the World Series. I didn’t make the playoffs last year and lost the field card game the previous year. It feels good.”
This is another box for checking bear. They hope to wear the ring in the future.
Lester said: “That should be the goal.” “Obviously, splitting is a step forward, right? You won the division and then you move on.”
