You've no doubt been wondering when the Cubs will next play. Now we know, as Major League Baseball late Wednesday announced starting times for League Championship Series games through Monday, October 19.

First, the NLCS games between the Cubs and either the Mets or Dodgers:

Game 1: Saturday, October 17, 7:07 p.m. CT
Game 2: Sunday, October 18, 7:07 p.m. CT

And, the ALCS games will have the following starting times (at this writing, neither of the teams had been determined):

Game 1: Friday, October 16, 7:07 p.m. CT
Game 2: Saturday, October 17, 4:07 p.m. CT
Game 3: Monday, October 19, 7:07 p.m. CT

As you know, the Cubs NLCS games will be televised by TBS, as were the Division Series games. The ALCS will be on Fox-TV (Game 1) and FS1 (Games 2 and 3).

The game times for the first two games scheduled for Wrigley Field, Tuesday, October 20 and Wednesday, October 21, have not yet been set. Each of the networks will have a pregame show beginning at 3:30 p.m. CT for the 4:07 games, and at 6:30 p.m. CT for the 7:07 games.
