Do we learn anything from this run by Cleveland? The Indians and Royals have shown starting pitching depth is overrated and bullpens are more important in today's game.

I felt bad, I camp more frequently so I have a burly sleeping bag, but the wife's recent purchase of 3 bags rated 30-40 so the rest of the fam had gear turned out not to be adequate.

Oh and Kipnis just made shit silly. Loving it.

Except that Cleveland's starting pitching "depth" is what got them to this point. Carasco and Salazar down ... and Tomlin, Bauer and the rookie lefty all chipped in

Man, I hope the Cubs can steal one tomorrow. Would suck pretty hard for those fans to have the series end by being swept at home.
I hope they win tomorrow so the Indians can celebrate at Progressive Field.

Man, what a year this could be for Cleveland sports. Unbelievable

I was really disappointed when the Red Sox lost to Cleveland, but I feel a lot better about it now. These guys were just destined. It reminds me of the post-Marathon 2013 Red Sox. There is something special going on, chemistry-wise.

In the playoffs, yes. But you can't get away with using he bullpen like that in the regular season.

It's been kinda cool to watch posters here turn from "shit the Indians derailed Papi's farewell tour" to "Fuck that's a pretty good team and they deserved it" over the course of the playoff march. Still a long way to go.

Does it make me a bad person that I've thoroughly enjoyed watching these broken and dejected Cubs fans trying to rouse enthusiasm for Take Me Out to the Ballgame?

You underestimate the antipathy towards Maddon

And, yes, this is far from over

Vince Vaughn has to sing that damn song after a 3 run homer right in the Cubs' eye and a 6 run deficit. Tough sitch.

Cubs unlucky and rattled. Extraordinarily rattled and they don't have a Big Papi to put the team on his back.
