Man, feel bad for Cleveland. Hats off to the New York Yankee fans.
I was hoping for a rematch between the Cubs and the Indians.
It seems there have been a lot of blown leads in the last few years: OKC Thunder 3-1 lead against Golden State; Golden State blew 3-1 against Cleveland in Finals; Indians blew a 3-1 lead in last years World Series; the Atlanta meltdown in the Super Bowl last year was unprecedented. Don't pay much attention to hockey, but seems there was a similar blown 3-0 or 3-1 lead there as well.
Even though they beat my Sox I'll go for anyone over the Yankees
Sorry to see there's no chance of a rematch, Chip.
The bad news for the Cubs is they let a winnable game get away from them. The good news is Strasburg can't pitch every game. That guy is plain nasty! Ironic that the rain played a part in the outcome of a game again, but against the Cubbies this time.
I expect Hendricks to give them a chance tonight. Hoping that Maddon can stop himself from pulling the starter too soon for once. Really wish he'd left Lester in there last night. He wasn't the starter obviously, but had been pretty much untouchable until he gave up a walk with two outs. 15 minutes later they are down by four.
I'm really bummed that the Indians aren't playing the Astros. I was planning on playing "Look Out Cleveland " by THE BAND on a a continuous loop the entire series.
Maybe they'll fire Francona and he'll be manager in Boston again next year....stranger things have happened.
I don't like the Cubs, but I like their chances tonight. What are the odds of both Hendricks and Lackey having an off night? Guarantee you John Lackey is fuming inside about not having a start and when that guy has something to prove, look out.
I think that's a good way to look at it. If Lackey is your worst starter, you've got a pretty solid rotation. He could be a difference maker tonight for sure. I think Hendricks will have a good night either way, assuming the stupid errors are limited behind him. He produces a lot of weak contact and relies on the infield.
Just hoping to not see Strop or Edwards.
Yea that's true. Seems like it used to be a few times per decade across all the sports, now it seems like big comebacks, either in series or just within a single football game are very common. That's a good thing to me.
Yes, but Cubs pitching or the coaching decisions didn't have any bearing on the outcome considering the Cubs couldn't even score a run at home.
Joe Torre wanted to move Tuesday's game to an earlier start time but TBS said no. I guess it's in the contract they had the right to do that. Tuesday's game probably would have been over by the time the first raindrop fell and the Cubs would not have faced Strasburg.
All water under the bridge of course but I think the Cubs have a chance of pulling it out if they're bats wake up.
Holy Smoke . . . Epic failure by the Tribe.
Reminds me of a return trip to Cleveland after living in Alaska for 15 years. The city looked familiar, but it felt a lot different. My brother took me downtown on a cold Sunday morning and we watched as they blew up (controlled demolition) the old buildings that occupied the site of the future Jacob's Field, new home of the Indians. A series of explosions, boom! boom! boom! . . . and the site was leveled. Similar to what the Yankees did to the Indians, knocked them flat on their collective hind end.
I've gotta tip my hat to the Yankees, they simply out-played the Indians.
I wish I could disagree or find something wrong with your post Geo, but I got nothing. I've never been a fan of Jacobs errr Progressive Field and now it's a total house of horrors! I wish they'd blow THAT place up!
I miss Municipal Stadium
Cleveland Municipal Stadium, what a gigantic dinosaur of a place that was. The Indians' home field when they last won a World Series.
You could have put Progressive Field and the Browns Stadium and the Gund Arena in there and still had plenty of room left over!
For people who aren't familiar with Cleveland, Gund Arena is not a sexually transmitted disease !!!
Go Astros! I like their chances against the Yankees - World Series here we come!
Actually the footprint of Progressive Field is larger than Municipal Stadium. The front row of the upper deck in the right field corner at the Prog would be outside of the old stadium. That upper deck corner would be comparable to sitting on the shoreway!
The Browns First Energy Stadium is also a lot bigger building. Municipal had more seats, the most individual seats in the world when it opened. It also had the most turnstiles, concession stands and bathrooms per person than any other Stadium of that time and most stadiums of today.
Did Ernie Johnson just say "Werth, all out, all the time?"
Don't worry Cubs fans. Harry says we got this one !
Well, I missed that one..Had Washington picked..
Now I'm picking the Dodgers to go to the WS against the Astros..
