The Cubs are patiently waiting to see who their opponent will be in the NLCS. While they insist they don’t care if it’s the Mets or Dodgers, fans are choosing sides.
Each fan has his or her own reason as to why they are picking a team, whether it be for their own convenience or who they think the Cubs have a better chance against.
New York Mets
I want it to be Cubs vs Mets in the NLCS

I'm a Mets fan for tonight. Only because I want the Dodgers to lose, which means the Cubs have that much more of a chance to win it all.

I hope the Mets win just so they can loose to the Cubs

@Buster_ESPN As a Cubs fan we’re rooting for the Mets to win but DeGrom to look shaky. So far so good.

@meli_fig Sorry. Much more confident Cubs can beat Mets.

Los Angeles Dodgers
@RandallJSanders No part of me wants to face the Mets with that PS. And the LU can out up 10+ runs any night. GO CUBS!!!!

@neb333 hate to be selfish but it’s way easier for me to see the Cubs here in LA. Regardless, good luck! Go Dodgers!

When you're a Cubs fan in LA and you want the Dodgers to win so hometown can meet new home. #GoCubs

The Cubs vs Dodgers and the Cubs will win in game 6
— Rob (@robbie_ryan34) October 16, 2015
If the Dodgers win, I'm fairly confident the Cubs will go to the series. Mets I'm not sure

Hope Cubs get the Dodgers next round

The Cubs could probably beat the Dodgers more easily, but how can you not root for the Mets here?

There are enough numbers to crunch that could create an argument for either team. According to Sports Illustrated’s Jay Jaffe, the Cubs may have a little tougher time with the Mets.
Regardless of who joins the Cubs in the NLCS, it should be a memorable series for Chicago.
