having been at 3-1 and lost....nothings over until 4 games are won.

It's just been amazing to watch the pitching of the Indian's against the best bats in baseball - Boston, Toronto, and now Chicago.  And hats off to Tito -  He is a mastermind at knowing when to pull a starter, who to bring in, and how to deliver the throat punch to win the game. He deserves MVP IMO.

GO TRIBE!

EDIT:  FWIW, Joe Buck will never be welcome in Cleveland  8)

And I quote, "Outraged, Sianis allegedly declared "Them Cubs, they ain't gonna win no more," which has been interpreted to mean that either the Cubs would never win another National League Pennant or else that they would never again win a World Series."    ;D   Just poking


If the damn goat would've just practiced a little better hygiene in the first place, they might've let him in.  :)

True that!  I think all the Indian's should wear a goat pendant while playing at Wrigley, in honor of Ol' Murphy.

Is it true that bars in Chicago are charging $200-300 just to get in the bar to watch?

That can't be, that's insane if true.

Ken, just imagine what the Tribe would look like if our payroll even approached $150M, let alone $200M+

I'd been fine this year if not for dropping 2 of our starting pitchers to injury...that hurts when you're playing for best of 7.

Yes, and Arrieta was a beast last night. At least we won't have to see him again for a while

Yeah, but now you have Hendricks tonight... he's even more of a beast as of most of this year, which came as a surprise to me. I'm excited for tonight's game. I'll be out at a bar with friends, drinking and eating and cheering along with the rest of the people in the bar. Should be a good time for all, given that the Cubs are playing well, that is. I'm still in that mental state that I can't believe the Cubs are in the World Series, so I'm just happy they're there at this point. Obviously I'd like to see them win it all, but just getting there and winning one game was my desire to fully invest my emotions in. So anything beyond this is a bonus at this point.

That is until Murphy's revenge shows his stanky goat  ::)
And the curse is broken dude, it was only on getting to the World Series, not winning it. The whole goat thing can die now.

Yeah hell of an outing by Cub's bats and pitching last night.  One thing I know for sure is you wont see as many Indian's fans at Wrigley as you did Cub's fans at Progressive.....they cant afford it!!!

Going to be hard to shut down the pine of the Cub's...amazing talent and the mystique of Schwarber has just raised the level through the roof.

See Indian's taking 1 of 3 at Wrigley, then fight to win 2 at home.....ugghh  ???

I grew up batting as first baseman and continued as a pitcher. I was lefty pitcher yet I learned first to hit as right hander. It's a dynamic that I like in baseball, and should be the same across leagues....all pitchers hit or none hit IMO.

$100 standing tickets in Cleveland went for over $1000...that's crazy and seriously prohibitive for many.  What bothers me more is Cleveland's upper deck in right field still had the seats blocked off with advertising barricades.  So many tickets that could have been sold and so many more fans that could have gone.



Yeah, it's just crap. Fans are getting priced out the games and it's a shame. Just trying to take my family of four to a Colts or Pacers game in the regular season is ridiculous. Postseason is prohibitive.

They likely don't have the stadium support staff to work the increased capacity.

I think football has a rule as well. I remember reading if a team covers seats to reduce capacity, therefor avoiding blackouts and saving labor on staff, they cannot add that capacity back if they make it into the post season. Typically the Raiders cover much of the upper seating, so if they continue to do well, owner, city and county are out a lot of money. Too early to search hard, so just believe me.

I see. Figured it had to be something like that....giving up cash for seats that would be sold seemed crazy.

Come to Cleveland Jon- Take the whole family to Cleveland Clown's football game for about $10 ticket (price for $60 tik on street day of game).   ;D
