Schwarber should get no glove in Chicago

As popular as it would be to start Kyle Schwarber in left field, it's a sucker bet after his two hugely impressive games as the designated hitter in Cleveland. Also, there's no need for it.

Script is setting up perfectly for the Cubs, with one potential hiccup

You could have scripted a better first two games of the World Series for the Chicago Cubs, but not by much. The Cubs have to lose Game 1 because come on. A sweep’s no fun. There have to be stakes, and the Cubs can’t look invincible all throughout their moment of triumph — that takes a lot of the pathos out of it. So getting a 6-0 loss in which Cleveland looks dominant out of...

World Series spotlight shifts to Chicago and Wrigley Field

CHICAGO (AP) A woman in a Chicago Cubs jersey climbed onto a man's shoulders to pose for - what else? - a selfie in front of the cherry-red marquee at Wrigley Field, the second-oldest ballpark in the major leagues. Not far away, red carnations lay at the foot of Harry Caray's bronze statue and fans were sipping midday beers outside Murphy's Bleachers, where a sign outside the pub...

Cubs may be young, but don't lack experience

Never before had a team started a World Series game with six position players under the age of 25.

Although these Cubs...

Josh Reddick spends a day at Disney during offseason

If you’re not one of the 50 players occupying a Major League Roster during the World Series, the time off can (I’m guessing) be a drag. Not even a week after his team bowed out of the NLCS against the Chicago Cubs, Josh Reddick is already off-seasoning like a champ. Tuesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder (along with Oakland A’s third baseman Ryon Healy) hit Disneyland...

Terry Francona shares funny quote about cold in Cleveland

The temperature in Cleveland for Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday night at Progressive Field was cold, but nothing conveyed that better than a Terry Francona postgame quote. “I tried to go to the bathroom in the 4th inning and couldn’t. That tells you enough,” Francona said after the game. Ooph. Yeah, that’s pretty bad. The weather for the game was listed as 43...

Cubs slugger Kyle Schwarber makes World Series history in Game 2

Kyle Schwarber tore ligaments in his left knee in an outfield collision on the third day of the season and hadn't played since, so when the Chicago Cubs announced before the World Series that he would be activated and immediately inserted into the lineup the natural reaction was, "What? How?"It was almost impossible to think Schwarber could go all season without playing, get a couple...

Joe Maddon’s Other Curious Decision

Andrew Miller, for once, didn’t look invincible. After relieving Corey Kluber in the top of the seventh inning, he walked Kyle Schwarber — who answered all of the questions about rust and timing in that fantastic at-bat — and then gave up a single to Javier Baez, loading the bases with nobody out. Down 3-0, this was the Cubs shot at winning Game One, and potentially running...
