The 2016 MLB Postseason continues this weekend with the League Championship Series. Four teams have one goal, and that is playing in the World Series in about a week, as we go from four to two teams. Who will play in the 2016 World Series? Here are my preview and predictions for the ALCS and NLCS.

Cleveland Indians vs. Toronto Blue Jays: While I predicted that the Blue Jays were going to the ALCS, I was wrong on the Indians. But I am going to pick the Blue Jays in six games, and I'm going to tell you why: they got the edge in pitching rotation and that is going to make an impact, and I don't believe that the Cleveland pitching rotation will be enough to stop the bats of the Blue Jays.

Chicago Cubs vs. Los Angeles Dodgers: It got a little scary for the Cubs against the San Francisco Giants, but a rally in Game 4 got the deal done to them back to the NLCS for the second year in a row. I think it's scary that they have to play a Dodgers team thanks to a solid pitching rotation, but it's going to be tough to pick the Dodgers over the Cubs, and I'm still going with the Cubbies to win this in five games.
