Joe Buck sounds as if he is going to blow his wad anytime the cubs do something positive. He reminds me of Ton y Kornheiser.

Schwarber again, incredible.  They are going to have to play him in Chicago.

Heading them describe what Schwarber did to get back .... Why aren't the Nationals doing this?

Honestly, sign their hitting coach to whatever he wants. He got Baez to cut his strikeouts down by half

is this the first WS ever with two bases loaded walks in the first two games (didn't Lester walk in one in the first yesterday?)

He decided against throwing to first because he saw a Bartman goat.

Cubs are too inconsistent offensively to be in the Series. 😉

Arietta at 79 pitches, guessing he'll get one more inning.

I didn't realize how much of a terrible baseball city Cleveland was, 28th in attendance this year with a good team

Total attendance and average attendance per game is a bit of a misleading statistic. It's important to take in to account the stadium capacity. Take the Dodgers. They had the highest average with 45k fans per game. But Dodger stadium has a capacity of 56k. So that means that, on average they filled it up about 80%. On other hand the Red Sox averaged 36,486 fans per game. By that number, Boston would be less a baseball city than LA. But Fenway Park only has a capacity of 37,949, which means, that, on average, the stadium was 96% filled every home game.

Now, Cleveland doesn't exactly fill it up (73%), but I don't think of it as a bad baseball town. I think there are other factors, such as economic conditions that play in to it, but at the end of the day, I don't think of them as one of the five worst baseball cities in America.

Stadium capacity only matters if you're selling it out (i.e. If you only have a 20k capacity, 20k is a great number), Cleveland didn't come close to that. You can talk about economic conditions, but other rust belt cities managed to do on (Cleveland lagged Detroit, Baltimore, Pittsburgh and Milwaukee), even in Ohio, they trailed Cincinnati. For a good team that's pathetic

$$$ might not be there, in the area.  Also stadium proximity could be an issue.

The only number that counts is straight up attendance. Like pitcher wins. Same concept.

They're 28th- any factor you can come up with (economics, ballpark size, ball park distance from city...) there are teams with equally bad or worse situations with higher numbers

Schwarber not cleared to play the field at wrigley.  He's a pinch hitter now.
