2016 World Series Game 7-Live Play By Play
Kluber On The Mound For The Tribe
GAME OVER-CUBS ARE CHAMPS
FRANCONA BLOWS IT FOR CLEVELAND
Cubs have stretched the 2016 World Series to 7 games.
The Tribe has their ace on the mound coming off 3-day rest again.
Their bullpen has had a few days off, and Tito needs a solid four innings at least out of Kluber not to mention some runs.
Game time is 8 PM, Wednesday, November 2, 2016 see you then.
6:40 PM, even The Bloke is texting about the game.
So much talk about a game of baseball.
Simply put, the team scoring the most runs win.
Kluber does have a challenge; pitching with short rest for the third time in about a month.
In all reality, major league baseball pitchers are treated like infants as far as pitches thrown during a certain time frame. And with good reason; the clubs spend a fortune for these guys and want to protect them as best they can. But can a Major League pitcher actually throw more pitches. Yes! With no problem.
Trump supporters, read his apology to America here.
The pitchers have the most up-to-date training and frankly, they leave a ton on the table every time they play.
During the normal season, you’ll never see a pitcher go back to back to back games on 3 days rest; it’s not needed.
We’re talking World Serious here so the norm is out the window. What can Kluber do? IMO, once Kluber gets through a few pitches, gets settled in, gets the butterflies out, it will be a normal game for him. The key is Kluber having a feel for his stuff; good fastball that he locates where Perez calls it, and his breaking balls, curve and slider must spin and move, again where Perez calls it.
Even though Tomlin had a problem last night with his curve ball, Perez adjusted really quick and if you noticed, after that bomb, he didn’t call another curve ball. It was just unfortunate that Tyler completely blew that fly ball to right center. If it was a catch, Tomlin would have been out of the inning giving up only one run. Of course; shoulda, coulda, woulda…
Trump supporters, read his apology to America here.
No matter how Kluber does, they still need some runs. All year different players have kicked in and gotten hits but during this series, and in the playoffs, the bats have been missing putting a ton of pressure on the pitchers.
IMO, they need to jump on the first pitch they’re looking for versus keeping the bat on their shoulders just looking. Loser goes home, they need to be aggressive at the plate, and careful on the bases.
7:30PM and the Buck love fest is about to start. #buckisaschmuck
Sure the Cubs are awesome but the Tribe took 2 out of 3 in Chicago. That in it’s self is amazing. They took one back last night and we’ll see exactly how good the Cubs are tonight.
NOTE: their fans are really dicks During an interview with Bauer, Cub fans were screaming, “Bauer, pitch the 7 game please” over and over. What a bunch of idiots and someone needs to identify those morons and out them to the world for the idiots they are.
The Fox/Cub love fest continues. If the Cubs are so good, why are we playing game 7? Indians should have been swept, right?
Frankly put, both team are good. Problem for the Cubs? Their fans are duffuses.
