Discus is not used in a baseball game.

We made up a version of frisbee baseball when I was in elementary school, using a discus would just be wrong.

I hope they pull it off.

Won't this be the second short start for the Indians pitcher?

I cannot believe the Cubs are playing in a World Series in my lifetime. And now can win it!

Its been a magical season that has fully washed the bad taste out of my mouth from 1984 and 2003. I don't even care if they win we are a very good team and will be for years to come :yay:

MLB: Game 7 of a lifetime! Cubs-Tribe tonight at 8

By Anthony Castrovince / MLB.com | 12:54 PM ET

Quote
CLEVELAND -- The following is offered without undue hype or hyperbole. It is simply true. We are about to witness the most anticipated Game 7 in baseball history.

This seemingly subjective idea is actually objectively accurate, because the Chicago Cubs and the Cleveland Indians came into this World Series with a combined championship drought -- an unthinkable 176 years -- that is the longest in the history of the Fall Classic. So now that we know for certain, in the wake of the Cubs' 9-3 victory in Game 6 on Tuesday, that in one game -- on one wild and wonderful Wednesday night at Progressive Field -- one of these teams is finally, mercifully going to be on top of the baseball world. The other club will see its misery extended, and it is impossible to find any parallel in the long history of this sport.

I aint been watchin baseball in a long time, yall, but I reckon if I'm gonna watch it at all, this here historic game should be the one to watch.

The last time each of these teams reached the World Series (1945 for the Cubs, '97 for the Indians), it went to a Game 7, so it's only fitting that this one has, too. The anticipation for this game on FOX is so strong that the game time has already been moved up eight minutes, from 8:08 p.m. ET to 8 p.m. on the nose.

"One thing's for certain," said Indians first baseman Mike Napoli. "There's going to be a champion tomorrow."

Clevelanders, who haven't seen a Tribe team win it all since 1948, are holding out hope for their second major sports title in a bit more than four months, but their first clinch in town since the Browns' 1964 NFL championship.

Out in Wrigleyville, they're praying to bury the billy goat and all the awful endings that have pervaded their 108-year wait.
This Game 7 is accompanied by so much angst and anxiety that it's easy to get swept up in the overarching storylines and forget we've got two very good, very worthy ballclubs that have fashioned a fascinating Fall Classic that stands on its own terms, droughts notwithstanding.

"It's been a very well-contested Series," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "Both sides have played really good baseball. [There's] been outstanding pitching. ... All of a sudden, our offense is having a resurgence, which we need. Of course we want to be the group that breaks the string, but it's just correct and apt that we'd go seven games."

Now, whether this will be the best Game 7 in baseball history, well, one figures Corey Kluber and Kyle Hendricks will go a long way toward determining that. These are two 2016 Cy Young Award candidates trying to pitch their club to the Promised Land, adding to the immediate allure of a game that, inherently, is all about burying the past.

dagnabbit, can't get any beer. I reckon I'll settle fer a nice sarsaparilla.

The billy goat curse was ended when the Cubs made the WS. Kluber is pitching his second outing in a row on short rest; we saw what happened last night to a different Cleveland pitcher on short rest. I'm really hoping the Cubs do to Kluber what they did to Kershaw in the NLDS

For like half an hour the entire Chicagoland area was booming and lit up like it was the 4th of July.

Apes going ape shit.

Now after the after-show on ESPN2 they are talking about how the Cavaliers are going to be affected now that one of the members is dating Khloe Kardashian.

So glad I lost sleep, what a roller coaster ride.

NOW, the Cleveland Indians have the longest dry spell for a World Series win at 68 years (really 69 years since this year is over).  Kind of fitting that this World Series would pass that certain baton.

"That means one hot streak can win you the whole championship! Since 1995, the team with the best regular season record has won the World Series just 16% of the time. The baseball playoffs don't reward skill -- it's f***ing luck."

I think the biggest thing we can take away from all this is that Theo Epstein is the Breaker of Curses.  He did it first with the Red Sox and now with the Cubs.  Maybe the Indians should think about trying to hire him next.

Hadn't thought of that one. Whenever I run down the street naked I'm always going whole hog, so to speak.
