Cubs plotting their path for a comeback: 'We're not ready to go home'

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 06:27:34 GMT

To realize the nearly impossible, the Cubs believe they can't get too far ahead of themselves. The Cubs' chances of repeating as World Series champions are technically alive courtesy of a 3-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series. "You can't think about the big picture in these games," Rizzo said.

Keep track of the MLB postseason, one game at a time

Thu, 19 Oct 2017 04:27:41 GMT

The 2017 MLB playoffs are here, with 10 teams providing us several storylines to watch this October, from the wild card games all the way through the World Series. We had three 100-win teams — the Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians, and Houston Astros — for just the sixth time in major league history and the first time since 2003. There were a trio of great turnaround stories as well. The Minnesota Twins had the worst record in baseball in 2016 with 103 losses, but this year they’re in the postseason as the second American League Wild Card, the first team ever to make the playoffs one year after losing 100 games. In the National League, the Arizona Diamondbacks rebounded from a 93-loss campaign

Dodgers' Roberts all too familiar with historic 3-0 comebacks

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 23:54:16 GMT

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Dave Roberts is not too scared of the Chicago Cubs completing a great escape in the National League Championship Series. The Dodgers are poised to reach the MLB World Series, leading the reigning champions 3-0 heading into Wednesday's game four. If there is anyone who knows something about being in a 3-0 hole in a postseason series it would be Roberts, who was a member of the 2004 Boston Red Sox team that was down 3-0 to the New York Yankees and came back to win the American League Championship Series in seven games.

City council to vote on legislation for PawSox stadium

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 21:22:53 GMT

A Rhode Island city council is holding a special meeting on legislation for the city and the state to commit $38 million toward a new stadium for a Boston Red Sox minor league team. The Providence Journal reports it's unclear whether the Pawtucket Red Sox stadium proposal has majority support in the Pawtucket City Council. It says the city council planned to hold a special meeting Tuesday night to vote on a proposed resolution encouraging the General Assembly to allow the city to bond up to $15 million for stadium costs.

NLCS Game 3: Dodgers one win away from first World Series in 29 years

Wed, 18 Oct 2017 04:41:22 GMT

The Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night drew to within one win of deposing the defending champion Chicago Cubs and returning to the World Series after 29 years. Yu Darvish, the mid-season trade acquisition, pitched into the seventh inning at Wrigley Field, Chris Taylor and Andre Ethier homered, and the Dodgers beat the Cubs, 6-1, to take a three-games-to-none lead in the best-of seven National League Championship Series.

Ron Gardenhire to interview with Red Sox Wednesday

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 22:53:34 GMT

Diamondbacks bench coach Ron Gardenhire's interview for Red Sox manager is scheduled for Wednesday, a baseball source told NBC Sports Boston. Gardenhire would be something of a safe hiring, considering his 13 years as manager of the Minnesota Twins.
