Well, I guess totally looking inept in CF cost someone his start tonight.....

 

I just hope it is worth watching. Or maybe not, maybe I'll read a book...

It's funny here in Florida. Lots of people cheering on the Cubs ... people who aren't really baseball people but just like a 'good story' who are convinced they just have to cheer for the Cubs. I ask why and get the answer 'Because it's the Cubs!' I usually don't say anything because whatever, but this is why I get annoyed with most of the Cubs fans out there ... they know nothing of the sport nor of the team nor of any other teams (even their local teams) but yay! it's the Cubs.

Edit: Go Indians! :)

Can't cheer for either team but looking forward to a great game. Naquin going to the bench was predictable. Had to be done.

Indians probably 60/40 to win game 7 with Kluber/Miller/Allen but #cantpredictball

Once again it's going to be 70 degrees at first pitch tonight. The weather gods are cooperating for November baseball between 2 Midwest cities....

It would be kind of nice for an AL Central team to win the WS two years in a row ...

and the start time had to be moved up because more rain is expected.

Those weather gods any relation to the baseball gods?

 

I prefer Cleveland win, even if I can' say/type their team name.. Mainly cuz I just hate that the Cubs fans believe in this curse stuff. 

 

Good for MLB/Fox that they're in there and they're in a 7th game. I actually like a lot of the Cubs young players... 

 

And yes, I will actually watch Game 7 tonight... probably.

Klu bot was reprogrammed after the 1st inning. Now it's in shut down mode.

'CLEVELAND — There is a chance of rain in the late innings of World Series Game 7 between the Cubs and Indians at Cleveland's Progressive Field on Wednesday night.

 

Major League Baseball announced late Tuesday it was moving up the start time by 8 minutes to 8 p.m.'
