November 3, 2016 (Cleveland) - Well, actually, that's not entirely true.  The goat was apparently at Progressive Field in Cleveland throughout the entire game.

But tonight, he had no effect.  The Cubs fought their way through the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers.

But none of that mattered anymore.  It all came down to fighting through the team who led the AL Central for most of the season, the Cleveland Indians.  The Indians fought through the Boston Red Sox and Toronto Blue Jays.  Both teams had been through probably a bloodier battle than every battle in the Civil War combined in their leagues.
