The answer that jumps to mind is obviously the Chicago Cubs, who will likely capture the hearts of the people as soon as the playoffs start given their World Series drought that predates the sinking of the Titanic and just a couple of decades between that title, and the year electricity was discovered. And they went into the weekend as the only team in the past five years with an OPS of.800 or better against both left-handed and right-handed pitching. They've gotten it done against the league's other top teams. Not only has it been their best season since 2008, but they have officially won 100 games this season - a feat they have not accomplished since 1935.
As the Major League Baseball season is in its last weekend and fan's attention is starting to turn to the playoffs and one of the biggest storyline of the playoffs is if the Chicago Cubs can break their 108 year streak of not winning the World Series. Not only did not one of the 25 pick the Mets to hoist the World Series trophy, no one even thinks the team can get back to the Fall Classic. Game Four, if necessary, will be on October 11 and Game Five, if necessary, on October 13.
But to get Chicago, the easiest path may be just like it was during the 2011 Phillies' playoff run - get them in the NLDS.

Whether it's the Blue Jays, Rangers or Orioles, no team will be able to slow down the Red Sox lineup.
As far as the Red Sox are concerned, offense is expected to win the day. Hundred-loss teams beat hundred-win teams. The Red Sox blew the AL East away with a strong September run. But Chicago and Boston are the best teams in their respective leagues, and it only makes sense that the season will come down to them. While the Cubs have given themselves as good a chance as they can, all anyone will remember is how this single one plays out.
