2016 World Series, Game 4-Live Play By Play
Corey Kluber On The Mound Tonight For The Tribe
Here we go again.
I’ll do this as long as I can take it without any chest pains, sharp temple blasts or eye flashes.
Yes, I’m a Homer, Go Tribe.
Full disclaimer; I lived in Chicago from 1977 thru 1980 and I loved every minute of it but really didn’t like the residents so F the Cubs.
Nap on the bench tonight. Santana gets the start at first with Davis in left.
One thought; gives Tito some power off the bench except Nap PH not very good but does give a little flexibility cause Santana can swing both ways.
But first to the liquor store.
Okay, a little Black Cherry Mikes Harder Lemonade and I’m ready to go. This stuff tastes like black cherry soda pop and the politicians are worried about legalizing pot. The big dummies.
I may have to take a nap if this game doesn’t start pretty soon.
Oh boy, Fox starting their love affair with the Cubs on TV.

Okay, here we go.
Davis has been off his game. Lets see how he does tonight.

Kip up, lets watch the ump, K. First couple swings, inside out, I’ll take it, got fooled on a slider for the K.
