Did anybody ever get the ball off the top of the Videotron?

Heyward has started every game this postseason against a RH starter. I don't see Maddon changing that approach now.


It's been 107 years since the Cubs won the World Series.

Years of evidence at CardsClubhouse & RedbirdTalk indicate it might take 107 years for the kids of today to finally realize that old man chevy often knows what he's talking about - no matter how against-the-grain it initially seems.

But Schwarber's batting 5th. You said he'd be in the back 4. So only batting .500.

Where in the heck did I say anything about his batting order position ????

Lindor could have about walked into 2B on that steal. And Lester looked pretty bad that inning.

Schwarber's 1st hit of the season misses goin' out by about 4 feet. Buck says the wind kept it in the park (thank God).

And a solo shot by the good guys, 3-0 Tribe!

Kluber was N A S T Y.

Arietta's been a little fragile this year. On the road, cold, rabid Tribe fans. Let's get on him tonight.

Be a HUGE deal if 'we' could go to Wrigley up 2-0, certain of a return to Cleveland. Go Tribe!

Game has been moved up an hour tonight due to weather. 6:00 start time.

Bauer goes for Cleveland, hopefully his little finger is healed enuff that he doesn't bleed-out on the mound again.

Incredible start from Kluber last night. Dude's stuff was just filthy. Miller getting out of that bases loaded, no out jam was pretty incredible as well. Perez showed off in his first WS game too. All around good game from the Tribe last night. Need them to have 3 more!

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Kyle Schwarber will ''absolutely'' start at designated hitter again after the young slugger went 1 for 3 with a double off the right-field fence and a walk Tuesday in his first big league game since April 7.

''I thought the bat speed looked good,'' Maddon said. ''You could see on the finish sometimes maybe the brace grabs him just a little bit. I kind of noticed that. Otherwise there was no kind of negative atmosphere surrounding his at-bats. I thought they were outstanding, actually.''

Schwarber is the franchise leader with five career postseason homers. All of them came when he was a rookie last year.

Yep that was me. I thought Baez was a lock for the 5 spot with the way he'd been going.
