The Brewers will host the victor of the Rockies-Cubs Wild Card Game at Miller Park.

A-Rod exclaiming, "See ya there!" makes you wonder if he's ever owned a watch in his life.

The title-winning Red Sox, Indians, Astros and Braves will advance to the postseason along with the Brewers, Cubs, Rockies and Dodgers plus the Yankees and Athletics, the two American League wild-card teams.

During those games - 21 of which have been starts - Lester has a 9-7 record but more impressively sports a 2.55 ERA.

Giving all these positive things about us, saying all these nice things about me before a game, it's nice. "It's all fine. He is really, really good in shape, fit, in form and I think he deserves to be in the England squad.

The National League Central champion Milwaukee Brewers will begin postseason play on October 4.

As it turns out, 162 games was not enough to decide much of anything in the National League. Or the three-run double in the 12th inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series. They're focused on the Lester with the Cubs now - and lately he's been very good.

As manager Joe Maddon said Monday, left-handed starter Cole Hamels also is on the roster as an emergency reliever, along with starter Kyle Hendricks. Jose Quintana (13-11, 4.09) will start for the Cubs for his seventh start against the Brewers this season.

Maybe that's why the Cubs were quite confident in their chances despite being involved in a "Win or Go Home" game right off the bat in the 2018 playoffs.
