Quoted from timtim:

yeah we have been counted out the whole playoffs but there is something special with this team.
but if there was any team to loose to at least its the cubs.
cubs haven't won the world series in 108 years, Tribe haven't won it in 68 years. Only one team won't have a world series champion after 109 years after loosing

I dont think anyone has counted out the tribe. Most cub fans I talk with have agreed that they are the team to beat and the toughest competition of the playoffs.

Unlike last year, this time I like both of the World Series teams (last year, I wish they both could have lost). I have to root for the Cubs though, since there is no one alive who has ever seen them as world champions. Since I've been watching the Series, I've seen every team that has ever been in a World Series in one, except for the Cubs. May the best team win, but I'd like to see the Cubbies do it.

27>11!

We still have a football team though... albeit a bad one

Quoted from Whysnow:

It is going to be a fun series no matter how many dirtbags want to chatter on with senseless stuff.
I will say that past experiences with Dirtbag make way more sense now that we all know he is a sox fan

I'm more of a Sox fan than a Cubs fan. Growing up while Frank Thomas played will do that.

I'm more of a fan of people than teams though.

Cubs fans are always wondering why so many Sox fans actively root against the Cubs and their fans (I'm not one of them by the way). I present exhibit A. Just watch the series and enjoy your incredibly talented team. Judas Priest.

1 down 3 to go. Go Tribe!

Quoted from Pinballocks:

That's funny. I was thinking 0 down, 4 to go ....

#162 2 years ago

exciting game.

Let's hope the cubbies can pull one out before coming home to take atleast 2 (would be nice to win the next 4 but let be realistic, the tribe is a damn good team)

Cubs are chokers, itll be another 100 years before they have a chance to win world series. Indians in 3, yes 3 that's how goo they are. Cubs will throw in the white towel after 3.

#164 2 years ago

That was a must win for the Tribe imo. Still going to be tough without Salazar and Carrasco. Who knows what Bauer can do tonight. I would think bleeding could still be an issue.

Klubot - love that guy. Go Tribe!

man what a good game. I'll admit I was a bit nervous with Miller, but he did get out of it

its raining lightly right now but hopefully it will hold off for the game.

#168 2 years ago

Just a reminder that the game is starting an hour earlier tonight because of the weather.

#169 2 years ago
Quoted from jyeakley:

Klubot pitched a great game - for Indians fans anyway.

He can actually get expressive too based on the cutaway camera shots of him in the dugout in the latter innings of last night's game.

#170 2 years ago

It's amazing that a guy who can pitch as good as Lester can't throw the ball to first. I forgot who the base runner was yesterday, but Lester caught him a mile off the bag. Virtually any other pitcher in the league would have picked him off. It's just so bizarre.

#171 2 years ago
Quoted from Chisox:

Judas Priest.

Maybe next year.

Lindor. He practically ran half-way to second and Lester just looked at him. I'm wondering if Lindor could have made it and Lester would have just watched. Luckily for us, he didn't throw...it is bizarre though. Lester did an underhand toss to first from a deflection off his foot.

Can't wait for it to be done so we can commence with the real sports. Chilly nights and no one but the pitcher will actually break a sweat sphhhheeeewwwww............"atheletes" HA HA HA

Oh brother do I have to have this argument again? Last time was 10 PMs with Centerflank.

#175 2 years ago

Magic number is 3!
Let's go cubbies!

#176 2 years ago

Go Cubs!

#178 2 years ago

It was great to see Arrieta back in top form with 5 1/3 hitless innings.

Go Cubs!!!!

#179 2 years ago

It was also nice to not be on pins and needles for most of the game. It'll be interesting to see how they use Babe Schwarber without a DH.
Hi Brian.

I like that moniker. He should go with it!

Has he been medically cleared to start?

#184 2 years ago

He's not playing in the field.

Not medically cleared - play is to have him pinch hit as needed

Talk about an over qualified pinch hitter ....

I saved that one. I like the commentator that uses a high voice after watching a player get hit.

Go tribe

We missed so many chances to score but it only took one.

Was on the edge of my seat most of the game.

yup, you sure are.

Quoted from Whysnow:

A blue flag with an "L" on it? That doesn't make any sense.

#197 2 years ago

I love it when the AL pitcher helps out his own cause at bat!

#198 2 years ago

The ump sucks-go tribe

#199 2 years ago

Well, it was fun making it to the world series. Glad the cubs should be good for a few years.
At this point they don't seem to have what it takes this year. Th experience will help them to be more composed next year.
I hope by some miracle I am wrong, but this series looks as good as done and it is just a matter of time.

Added over 3 years ago: edit: so happy this worked out!

go cubs go!
