Royals were the biggest overachievers in sports last year, probably in the last century.  Experts rightly predicated that going into this season and they fell fast, but baseball is baseball and anything is possible.    No one plays more small ball than the Giants and the Cubs beat them.   Cubs have a historically good defense built for small ball and because of no DH, Madden has played that all year.   Giving him the DH For 4 games is almost cheating.  People haven't been that successful running on Lester, because Ross is throwing most people out regardless.   Now, when Montero is catching Arrieta, anyone can run lol.  Schwarber can still hit and will still scare them, even as a decoy it's a nice development.   if the Indians weren't so right-hand heavy I don't think Kyle would be on the roster though because he can't hit lefties.  

I forgot about Ross but I meant that they will be able to run on Lester because he is almost incapable of throwing to first. Cleveland stole the most bases in the AL and they don't get caught often. I agree about the Royals but I would say the Indians play a better version of smallball than either them or the Giants. Think this series is gonna go to Game 7.

There are people in my office that think the Cubs will sweep the Indians.  

 

You would think after going 72 years without going to the World Series they would be a little humble. 

 

Pulling for the Indians and moving closer to being a White SOX fan.

Your bullpen got blasted by the Cubs.  What are you talking about?  Old boy Blanton got rocked.  You had to pull in Jensen for 3 because no one else on your team could come in.  You had to keep Kershaw in when he should have pulled after 3 because no one else could come in yet.  Yes, the bullpen is bad.

It would be really, really, really hard for you to be more wrong.

Incidentally, the Dodgers also posted this stat on their rookie starters this year:

" Nearly half the starts for the 2016 #Dodgers came from brand new Major Leaguers, with the team going 40-30 (.571) in those games. #DodgerInside"

Cubs magic number is 108. Last time they won the World Series was in 1908 but the last time they have been in it all together, was in 1945, 71 years!

Yeah those definitely look like playoff status, but wait, they aren't.

Kluber with WS record 8 K's thru 3 innings. Wow.

Dude is sick, doesn't help when ump is giving you the home team garbage truck sized strike zone either.   This was the same for the first Kershaw game the Cubs had too.   They need to hurry up and just go to robo-ump honestly.

Nice moment by MLB with the Stand Up for Cancer moment.

Cubbies appear completely overmatched by the Indians however. Too bad, was hoping for a competitive series.

Sorry we couldn't have been the ones to send you home early, now you'll have to suffer losing on the biggest stage. Can't imagine having my favorite football team and baseball team lose in the final game...

How you like me now ??
