Fans still remember those five straight postseason losses at home, the infamous Game 6 in the 2003 NLCS to Game 2 of the 2008 NLDS, but that’s in the past, because now in 2015, the Cubs have the chance to beat the St. Louis Cardinals and advance to the NLCS for the first time since 2003.

Looking at how pitcher Jake Arrieta has been pitching, is no surprise he is starting for the Cubs on Monday. The past season, the Cubs won 49 games at home in front of cheering crowds.

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo said Sunday, “This whole seven years now of not having a [playoff] game here, it should be wild,” he also said, “Seeing the reaction after the wild-card game was pretty insane, just for a wild-card game.” “We’re used to it here, so I think it’ll work to our advantage. The fans here are unbelievable. I can’t wait to see how loud it is. I want to see if we can be louder than it was in Pittsburgh because that place was unbelievable loud.”

Wrigley Field is known for being loud and homey when the Cubs are winning, with the company of the tourists watching the game together peacefully.

“I think the personality of our team is expanding to our fans too,” Rizzo said. Such things as Miguel “#WeAreGood” Montero, Rizzo and Arrieta, who credit manager Joe Maddon with encouraging players to have a good time, watching players and fans clap to the beat of Castro’s walk-up song, “Ando En La Versace” by Omega, are bringing fans and players closer together
