About New York Mets vs. Chicago Cubs

There was a time a few decades back when there was a lot of animosity between the Chicago Cubs and the New York Mets. The National League expanded to three divisions in 1994 but before that, the Cubs and the Mets both were members of the National League East Division. There has been some heat between these two sides over the last few years and there are signs that the temperatures will rise in the not so distant future.

Some Memorable Moments

The Black Cat Incident -The Cubs had started that season like a house on fire and were leading the NL East by a whopping nine games by August 16. The New York Mets were hot on their heels. So, on September 9, 1969, the Chicago Cubs took the New York Mets at the Shea Stadium. Ron Santo, the Cubs All-Star was on deck when a black cat crossed his path. Many believe it was after that moment the Cubs lead began to dwindle. The “Miracle Mets” won the game 7-1 and then eventually won the World Series that year too.

The 2015 NLCS -The Chicago Cubs and the New York Mets met each other in the 2015 NLCS. The team from the Big Apple won 4-0 and made it to the World Series against the Royals only to come up short in the end. The Chicago Cubs however had the last laugh the very next season as they went on to win the World Series that year and ended their 108 year wait for the biggest prize in baseball.
