Oct 26 2016SENDING A MESSAGE
There are those yuppie Cubs' fans who thought their beloved team would roll over the Indians in the World Series. Nope. Game One sent a message with a 6-0 Tribe win, featuring a 4th post-season shutout and 15 (?!) strikeouts. Now this doesn't mean the Indians are going to win the whole thing, after all, people beside Corey Kluber have to pitch. But the Tribe isn't getting swept, either. And one more win means, at worst, the series ends in Cleveland. Hard to believe, but to most of the nation the Indians are not just the underdog, they're the villain. And I don't think that's a bad combination.
