    Also add in the stupid All-Star game determining the home field.

    Agreed - having ASG exhibition determine home field is amazingly stupid, especially when you look through history and one league will win 7 out of 8.

    This series going to Game 7 is certainly fitting.

    Coin flip for game 7. Public money will be on the Cubs, so the sharps will bet Cleveland for value for their bets.

    Kind of like game 7 in NHL playoff series where 'first goal wins'... not always, but there is huge momentum from scoring the first goal.

    Pitching has been so good in this series it may be 'first run wins'... because of the momentum factor. There can be a comeback victory, but that would be epic.

    Yes, that first run will be huge and if I were a betting man I'd put it on the Cubs. GO INDIANS !!!

    Homerun Cubs with the first at-bat. So "first run wins" means this is over?

    Man, this is insane. I don't have a dog in this fight but you have to feel for Cubs fans right now.

    Cubs Manager will be second guessed a lot for those pitching changes if they lose this.

    Why in God's name take Lester out when he got you two outs? Let him finish the inning. And yes, I know the strategy behind it. In theory your ace closer can get 4 simple outs. But this is every Cubs fan's nightmare. You're one out away from taking a 3-run lead in to the 9th inning of Game 7 of the World Series, you haven't won in over a CENTURY, and your ace promptly gives up three runs. WITH TWO OUTS. That's pure insanity.

    I was rooting for them just so I could say I saw history. But God must it suck to be a Cubs fan. They are cursed...absolutely cursed.

    I work next to the biggest Cubs fan in the world. He's either going to be the happiest or the saddest person on the planet tomorrow morning.
