Fri, 28 Oct 2016 15:25:08 EDTThere's World Series fever everywhere you look in Chicago as Wrigley Field prepares to host its first Fall Classic game since Oct. 10, 1945.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 07:04:35 EDTThe ivy is changing from green to red, an awesome autumnal attribute the public has rarely seen. The corner of Clark and Addison will finally be bustling with activity in the final days of October. The World Series is coming to Wrigley Field tonight, and it is coming with the Cubs and Indians knotted at one win apiece in a fascinating Fall Classic matchup with historic implications.

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 02:34:26 EDTEach FOX broadcast of the World Series between the Cubs and Indians will be streamed live to eligible subscribers for only $9.99 with the MLB.TV Postseason package.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 00:12:19 EDTAs the World Series shifts to Wrigley Field for Game 3 tonight -- knotted at one win apiece after the Indians fell to the Cubs, 5-1, in Game 2 on Wednesday night -- the Tribe hopes to get more of the same from right-hander Josh Tomlin, the unheralded veteran who has enjoyed tremendous success on the postseason stage this month.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 20:28:00 EDTJosh Tomlin won both of his postseason starts, one in the AL Division Series victory over Boston, the other over Toronto in the AL Championship Series. In those two starts, he gave up three runs over 10 2/3 innings. Another performance of that sort would be just about right for the Indians.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 07:06:50 EDTThe wind could be howling out at Wrigley Field tonight and the brick wall that exists beneath the ivy is unforgiving. As if that is not intimidating enough, Carlos Santana will be dealing with the inherent pressure that comes with playing on the World Series stage.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 15:30:49 EDTThere is one moment in the World Series that will unite us all: Whether Cubs or Indians, whether your dreams include Bob Feller or Ernie Banks, whether you wake up every morning cursing goats and Steve Bartman or if you shave your head like Charlie Sheen in "Major League" -- there is one moment taking place Saturday night in Game 4 of the World Series (8 p.m. ET on FOX) that will stop us all in our tracks and remind us of baseball's power to galvanize a nation.
Wed, 26 Oct 2016 23:12:48 EDTHere are the start times for the 2016 World Series between the Cubs and Indians.

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 00:00:30 EDTJosh Tomlin rarely cracks 90 mph with his fastball, and that might not seem like a great fit against a powerful Cubs lineup in Game 3. That said, Tomlin has added spin and movement to his curve, and that could work out well, since the Cubs struggle against curveballs.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 02:47:08 EDTWith Game 3 projected to have winds of 10 to 20 mph and gusts beyond that, we could see plenty of offense. How badly could that impact the pitchers? Let's check out Tomlin and Hendricks this postseason to see how they might be affected.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 00:05:56 EDTTerry Francona came to Cleveland with the pedigree of having won two World Series in Boston, and had he imported his own hand-picked pitching coach when he took over as the manager of the Indians before the 2013 season, he would have been well within his right to do so. But the folks in the Indians' front office presented Mickey Callaway, who at the time was their Minor League pitching coordinator, as an option to consider. And to say Francona's eventual selection of Callaway has provided a productive pairing is an understatement.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 00:00:46 EDTBefore each pitch, Ryan Merritt extended his arms skyward, collecting himself before shifting into his delivery. Watching from his home in Frisco, Texas, Kevin Cullen could not help but be reminded of when he first scouted the Indians lefty and saw a mix of nervous ticks.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 00:02:31 EDTThe Indians have announced their planned rotation for the remainder of the World Series, but everything is subject to change. Team president Chris Antonetti made that clear during Thursday night's workout at Wrigley Field on the eve of Game 3 against the Cubs.

Fri, 28 Oct 2016 00:07:20 EDTAfter the Cubs' 5-1 win over the Indians in Game 2 on Wednesday evened the series at 1 game apiece, the World Series shifts to Chicago for Game 3 tonight (7:30 p.m. ET air time /8 ET game time on FOX). There's World Series fever everywhere you look in Chicago as Wrigley Field prepares to host its first Fall Classic game since Oct. 10, 1945.
Fri, 28 Oct 2016 00:17:37 EDTOn a cold, damp Wednesday night in Cleveland, not a single ball cleared the outfield wall at Progressive Field as the Cubs beat the Indians, 5-1, in Game 2 of the World Series. In a home-run happy year, it was the first time in 30 postseason games that neither team went deep.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 13:24:52 EDTWhat to do on your epic World Series road trip
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 00:26:53 EDTIt was creeping across the radar, a big green blob threatening the big green field of play. The forecast was foreboding enough that the start time for Game 2 of the World Series was moved up an hour, and the looming rain turned out to be an ideal metaphor for the storm that was approaching an Indians team whose run to this Fall Classic was nearly -- and, evidently, unsustainably -- free of flops.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 02:45:30 EDTJake Arrieta took a no-hitter into the sixth inning and Kyle Schwarber had a pair of RBIs as the Cubs handed the Indians a 5-1 loss at Progressive Field on Wednesday night to even the World Series at a game apiece.

Thu, 27 Oct 2016 01:35:27 EDTThough Trevor Bauer's finger did not pose any problems on Wednesday night, the vulnerability of the Indians' rotation was on full display in a 5-1 loss to the Cubs in Game 2 of the World Series at Progressive Field.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 00:56:23 EDTMeasured in decibels, perhaps Wednesday's highest-octane moment at Progressive Field occurred in the sixth inning of World Series Game 2.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 01:45:25 EDTJason Kipnis was charged with two errors in a 5-1 Game 2 loss to the Cubs that evened this World Series at one win apiece.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 02:31:47 EDTThe Cubs were the only team to average more than four walks per game this season, and Cleveland issued only two free passes to take Game 1 of the Fall Classic. But with eight walks in Game 2 on Wednesday, they lost, 5-1. For the Indians to reclaim the edge, they'll need to avoid putting so many runners on base.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 01:05:14 EDTIndians right-hander Danny Salazar hadn't pitched since Aug. 9 due to a right forearm strain, but he proved he was ready to contribute with his first professional relief appearance Wednesday. Although he didn't factor into the decision in the Cubs' 5-1 win over the Indians in Game 2 of the World Series, he showed he will be a major weapon moving forward.
Thu, 27 Oct 2016 01:27:42 EDTThe Cubs' series-evening triumph Wednesday was their first World Series game win since Game 6 of the 1945 Fall Classic on Oct. 8, 1945. That's a span of 25,952 days, which is a numerical palindrome (the same number forward and backward). Here are some other facts and figures to know about Game 2.
