Have a couple good friends in Chicago that say the cover charges for bars are approaching $250. They say that includes all-you-can-drink, but holy shit. Also that non-all-you-can-drink places are charging $100. (this is all in Wrigleyville).

I remember for game 7 of the ALCS and game 4 of the WS in '04, going to the Cask at like 430-5 and getting in, no cover.

Tomlin has significantly changed his pitch mix since he was removed from the rotation and then ended up back in the rotation.

That's not what happened. He altered his pitch mix in the game against the Red Sox and had success, as I'm sure we all remember. Then against the Blue Jays he went back to the approach which was a good call since the Blue Jays were the worst team against curveballs in MLB this season, according to this article. Whether or not he'll do it again tonight is up for debate, he shouldn't try it, though.

The Cubs were the fourth best team against curveballs this season per Fangraphs. While Javy Baez struggles against them, Kris Bryant annihilates them, and everyone else can handle them. I think the best bullpen in baseball will be in for a long night.

Now, how much weight we put into those numbers is up to you guys, I haven't researched those stats at all. But it's something to think about if he's relying on his curve more than usual (think once every 3 pitches as opposed to once every 6 pitches he threw during the season).

$250 to sit in some shitty bar drinking for 12 hours before the game even starts. That sounds fucking awful.

Maybe I'm just antisocial, but in '04, '07 and '13 I watched the games at home, with all the lights off except for the TV, with only my family (fiancé/eventual wife in '04, and infant/little girl added in '07 and '13) around. The last thing I wanted at a time like that was to be surrounded by bunch of loud drunks when I was trying to watch the game.

I have and always will feel this way. Random game in June? Sure, I'll meet someone for a beer to watch a game. No fucking way in the playoffs.

I hope the Tribe kicks the crap out of the Cubs and ruin the coronation.
Okay, I wouldn't have noticed it in 2004, but if it was like this for the "long suffering Boston fans" than I can understand why other fans would have been annoyed with it.

What? Just tuned in.
Patrick Stump with national anthem
So instead of Fall Out Boy, just a big fall for the Cubbies

Seriously, Theo, what's the point of being friends with Eddie if he can't do the anthem
for your team's first WS game in 71 years?

I turned down an invite to my son's house for Super Bowl 49 because the (recent) two SBs the Pats lost we'd gotten together with him and his family. It worked. So they came down to our place the next week.

Really enjoying this years playoffs, but the lack of comebacks once a team gets out in front is a trend I'd like to see bucked.

Two awful strike calls in the top of the 1st. Gonna be a long night for CLE hitters if Kyle is getting those outside pitches consistently
