• Tonight’s Game 7 In Cleveland

    Posted by on November 2nd, 2016 · Comments (5)

    This season, Kyle Hendricks, on the road, in a hitter’s ballpark, is a good pitcher – but, not a great one. That said, expect to see Jon Lester in this game tonight at some point for the Cubs. And, when that happens, Cleveland better be aggressive on the bases. (And, maybe that’s a reason for Francona to play Guyer, Davis and Crisp in the outfield tonight and bench Chisenhall and Naquin?) On the flip side, Corey Kluber should be good for 50 pitches and 4 effective innings tonight, at the least. Then, you’re going to see Shaw, Miller and Allen. Of course, Schwarber, Rizzo, Bryant, Zobrist and company can swing the bats. But, good pitching beats good hitting. If Kluber, Shaw, Miller and Allen are on tonight, I see Cleveland winning a close contest. To me, that’s the key to the game tonight: Cleveland’s best pitchers against Chicago’s great hitters. Whomever wins those battles will win the war.

      I’m rooting for Cleveland, but It’s reminding me of ’04. Once it became 3-2, the momentum switched to Chicago.

      I hope the Indians win, that said, the odds favor Chicago. If I had to bet I’d say 6-2 Cubs win (I hope I’m wrong).

      2004 and 2016. Theo will never have to buy a drink ever again for the rest of his life.
