Post by: MAN OF BLUES on October 19, 2016, 05:09:20 pm
The tribe beat the jays, just now... and are off to play the world series against the cubs. (Hopefully....).... awesome....
My team has been amazing me thru the division finals and today made it worth it....

Yah, joke all ya want, they truely are a force to contend with....

Best part, is one team, of the two, that has been in a dought for decades, will finally get the big prize....
I love both teams... but man, Cleveland is ROCKING right now....

Hope the Cubs can pull it out. It would be a good series with no coasties or other foreign teams involved.  8)

Not rabid but gotta pull for the Cubbies. So many years watching WGN with my grandaddy in the early days of cable. It was a marvel to pick up Cubs and Braves games almost everyday living in rural Louisiana. watching the teams come out now. Just be a fan of America and baseball. Everyone is smiling and having fun on the field. The stadium looks beautiful. Modern classic managers in the dugout. Both teams are underdogs so pull together and have fun watching.

Ancient times indeed!!

I didn't think that I was that old, but I remember as a little kid rooting for the Cardinals because they were the closest team to north Texas. Well, I guess except for the Houston Colt 45's expansion team that later changed their name to the Astros when the Astrodome opened.

I haven't given up yet.  But I've just been waiting for the other shoe to drop all playoffs long.  I thought the Cubs would be good this year, never expected them to be in the Series so I think it's a win season :)

No matter who takes it, there is great baseball being played... by both teams...

Nothing better in baseball than a 7th game in the World Series. Cubs must win tonight, I'm rooting for them all the way.

This has been a great series so far, some outstanding baseball by both teams (pitching has been amazing).

Googled it, and I see the Cubs took it 9-3.

Is that score line not a hiding? I only know the basics of baseball, from watching movies...LOL.

What would the average score be if it was a tight game?

You never played a game of baseball/softball/wiffleball/stickball  when you were a kid?   :o

I don't know what you're asking here, "Is that score line not a hiding?".

A close game could be almost any score. 1-2 or 10-11 or whatever. It just depends on the pitching and what's going on in the field. And of course the batting.

0 to 0 into extra innings, game won on a 2-out full-count bases loaded walk.

There's ya a tight game.

Or.....
Similar scenario, bottom of the 9th, bases loaded, full count 3-2, wild pitch..... and Kenny Lofton steals home on a passed ball error.....

Yeah... baby...  stuff happens....


As for tonights game..... I set up the shrine, and JoBu is happy...
Bring it on....


I was joking about the "tight game " scenario,
But....

'95 ALCS game 6.... was not a joke...

A buddy of mine has two tickets for the 2016 World Series for all Wrigley Field games.  Box seats plus airfare, accommodation, etc., but he didn't realize when he bought them that this is going to be on the same day as his wedding - so he can't go.

If you're interested and want to go instead of him, it's at St. Peter's Church, in Chicago, at 5 p.m. Her name's Louise.  She's 5'4", about 125 lbs, good cook, makes $130,000 a year!  She will be the one in the white dress.

Have you ever played Cricket or Rugby Conrad....?  ;D ;D Just kidding. We did play "softball" at primary school, but never serious, or with any major rules. The field was loaded with about 20+ fielders, as it was out "PT" period... Think ya'll call it "Phys-Ed".

A "Hiding" in rugby would be a score difference of 30 points or more. A converted penalty gives you 3 points, a try 5 points, and the try conversion and additional 2. (so a converted try = 7points).

Back to the Baseball, I see the Cubs & Indians are tied at 3-all..... when is the final game?
Title: Re: indians vs cubs.... about time...

As I said, both teams desrved the venue, and the fanfare, and my hat is off to the Cubs, great game...
Anyone that followed the series, and watched this had to agree, it would come down to the last posible point.


Kudos to the Cubs.... now we prepare for next year.....

The Indians gave it all they had and so did the Cubs. Now THAT'S how you play the game. It was a thing of beauty.

If the fans didn't get their money's worth during this series, they need to have their head examined. I would have been happy for either team winning, but have to admit a little happier it was the Cubs.

I can't help smiling every time I think of the Cubs winning. I was out and about yesterday and EVERYONE is a Cubs fan now. So many folks are wearing Cubs stuff, it's amazing.  :)
I caught a bit of the parade yesterday....estimated 5 million people lined the streets.  It was unreal.  Even down here in TN I see a lot of Cubs jerseys and ball caps.  But I'm a midwetern transplant and the Cubs will always be my team.  My poor nephew married a Cardinals fan.  Poor girl.  She's cute but not too bright  ;D
