The Cubs were the better team, top to bottom. The Indians played a heck of a series, but at the end I think talent just took over. That being said Maddon tried to lose it for the Cubs, no way Chapman should have pitched that much. I'm a Reds fan, Chapman is an amazing closer, the guy is a blast to watch, but the more he pitches the less effective he is.
I do think the Cubs will be around again next year, depending how they handle free agency. I believe Arrieta and Chapman are the only two that are going to hit the market. You will have a world series team potentially returning their entire starting lineup along with 4 of 5 of their starts, all 5 if Arrieta resigns.
