This could be quite an epic game. Hope it lives up to the billing it will get!

Not-that-Fun fact: the Boston Red Sox have never won a World Series Game 7. They are 0-5, in 1912 (won game 8!), 1946, 1967, 1975 and of course 1986. The Boston Americans won game 7 (and 8) in 1903. 1915, 16 and 18 were won in 5, 5, and 6.These fan bases are going to be gripping hard. Makes me very happy that we didn't have a World Series game 7 in 2004.
I assume you've got your 7th or 8th inning guy (don't recall who those are for the Cubs) mentally prepared to enter the game at the first sign of trouble, with Lester entering the game the following inning (or maybe the inning after that).If Lester comes in to the game it has to be with no one on base so that already limits where he can get in so maybe Lackey will be the first guy out with Lester getting the next clean inning.
Good pitchers for the Cubs are Chapman, Strop, Monty, and Rondon, no?I assume you've got your 7th or 8th inning guy (don't recall who those are for the Cubs) mentally prepared to enter the game at the first sign of trouble, with Lester entering the game the following inning (or maybe the inning after that).
What are the rules for postponements, games getting called mid-action and so on?It looks like rain in coming into Cleveland later this evening.
I believe in the playoffs , every game must go 9 innings. They can suspend play after however innings, but the next day, they will play until they get to 9.What are the rules for postponements, games getting called mid-action and so on?
I mean it´s obvious they want to finish a game that has started or not start it at all. But what happens if the heavy raining starts and the game is tied or a team leads? Will it be resumed at that point or start at 0-0 (if it´s tied, or just early/before the 5th inning)?
http://nypost.com/2016/10/26/world-series-game-could-last-3-days-under-mlbs-rain-rule/The rule has gone into effect just one time – Game 1 of the 2011 American League Division Series between the Yankees and Tigers at Yankee Stadium. An unexpected shower cut the contest short in the middle of the second inning, with the game tied at 1-1, and the two teams picked it up the next day. The Yankees won, 9-3.
I don't get it, as die hard Clevelanders, wouldn't they like the fans?Darren Rovell ESPN Senior Writer
Charlie Sheen will be in Cleveland for Game 7. He is being flown in by Cleveland entrepreneurs Bobby George of Corporate Management Group & Tony Madalone, owner of apparel company fresh Brewed Tees partnered to bring sheen to cleveland for game 7. Said Madalone: "We're die hard Clevelanders and wanted to do this for the fans."
It was questioned in North KoreaIt's going to be a huge nutpunch for a lot of people either way.
I haven't really followed the series very closely since I was out of the country without regular access to Fox or the internet. Can I assume that Maddon's usage of Chapman has been questioned here and elsewhere?
If its Guyer, it has to involve a HBP.I'm going with a full-on nutpunch:
Indians batting B9, down 3 runs. First 2 go quietly, then bases are loaded on dropped strike 3, error and HBP. Then Brandon Guyer's deep fly Cansecos off Heyward's head for the walk off granny.
There can be no other outcome.
