Depends on what you mean. I'd say the team that won 97 games in a division the Dodgers would have finished in 5th place is the better team. Unless one or both teams make major moves in the off season the Cubs will win more games than the Dodgers again next year. In this particular series, yes, the Dodgers were the better team. I guess in the end that's all that matters.

The whole series was a huge suck fest for the Cubs. It was embarrassing.
My cousin-in-law is from Chicago and a huge Cubs fan. He has "CUBSWIN" on his license plate. I was watching the game with him on Saturday and he said the "curse" is the stupidest thing he's ever heard. He said until they get players that don't choke and deal with the pressure in the playoffs, they will always lose.
He hates the White Sox. He said they don't matter. Just like the Angels. I told him I agree. F' the Angels!

What matters is that the Dodger team that compiled their 84 win season is nowhere near the team we have now. Of the two teams, the Dodgers had the best hitter (Manny Ramirez) and an extremely competitive top to bottom lineup (mind you, the "team" that won only 84 games didn't have Furcal or Ramirez for much of the season [or Casey Blake, either, I guess] and had Juan Pierre and Andruw Jones losing games for us). Arguably, this lineup now (the Dodgers didn't even have to use their tremendously deep bench) is better than the Cubs' lineup. Scratch that. This lineup destroyed the Cubs' three best starters, no "arguably" necessary.

I mean...we beat Dempster and Zambrano in Wrigley. Then we beat Harden in Dodger Stadium.
This was no flukey, come from behind squeeker of an upset or anything. This was an absolute dismantling of the other team.
Aside from Daryle Ward (funny), the Cubs were universally bad. Cubs were bad. Dodgers were good. Better team won. "It's not how you start, it's how you finish." etc. etc.
Would a seven game series have been more fair or still no? Because that would just mean the Dodgers would be up 3-0 going into game 4 at Dodger stadium...
