It's all set. Saturday night at Dodger Stadium, the Dodgers host the defending champion Chicago Cubs in a best of 7-game series. 

The winner moves on to the World Series, against the American League champion — either the New York Yankees or the Houston Astros.

For the Dodgers, it'll also be a chance for payback as the Cubs knocked them out of playoffs last year on their way to a World Series title. 

For preview of the series — and what could come next — A Martinez spoke with David Vassegh, host of Dodger Talk on AM 570 KLAC.

On the possibility of an LA-New York World Series

It would be so special to have the Dodgers back in the World Series since 1988. Couple that with them facing the New York Yankees, their greatest rival going all the way back to Brooklyn in the WS. I'm not sure anybody could get a ticket for under $500. The city is already buzzing about the possibilities of that match-up and it would just be great to relive all those great memories from 1981.
