Wow..
Quote from:  Friedrich Nietzsche
The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself.

OMG - guess Davis made up for his slight blunder in CF earlier in the game...

I can't believe Cleveland is about finish blowing a 3-1 series lead, with games 6 and 7 at home.

Oh, wait ... it's Cleveland we're talking about.

Can't stand the Cubs. All the national media have been fawning over them for months, and now we're going to have to hear about their "great comeback" and how awesome Kyle freakin' Schwarber is.

*cough*
I'm bitter.

The age-old problem of baseball coaches trying to look smart by doing what everyone else would think is a bad idea -- overextending Chapman.

LOL. Can't believe it. I'll chalk that up to the power of reverse psychology.  ;D

I was also about to say that I can't believe Andrew Miller gave up a homer to Grampa Ross, but then Chapman returned the favor by giving up one to a journeyman.

Wow, Yan Gomes is terrible. Three of the worst swings I've ever seen—and back-to-back-to-back, no less.

Yeah, Ross has got the magic. Glad the Sox got some of it a few years back  ;)

And Chapman has been incredible his whole career, especially this year. That .825 WHIP is nuts. What a time for a home run.

This is shaping up to be one of the all-time great WS finishes. So much on the line.

Is there a retractable roof there?  Can they postpone the game because of rain ?  Lol

Figures that the usually reliable Cody Allen, immediately after his team ties the game, issues a leadoff walk to David Ross.  ::) My comments about Cleveland choking still have a chance to come true! ;D

He's having trouble putting away a guy who's been an awful hitter this season.

On weather.com looks like scattered showers and rain the next few hours. Odds of rain go up by the hour... So a delay might be counterproductive.

And no retractable roof  :D

Would be pretty interesting if they did delay this game until tomorrow. Might be a first for a game 7.
