- The World Series is officially underway and the Cleveland Indians gained the upper hand in game one thanks to some stellar pitching from Corey Kluber and the bullpen, plus some unexpected offense from Roberto Perez who blasted two home runs as the Indians took a 6-0 victory over the Cubs.
- Kyle Schwarber is back, solely to DH and pinch hit for the Cubs. What can they expect from him?
- All around the media, they’re reporting that Chicago could bring home its first world series in over a 100 years...forgetting the White Sox exist and they won in 2005
- The Minnesota Twins have announced their new General Manager, his name is Thad Levine
- Neil Solondz’s observations from yesterday’s action in the Arizona Fall League.
- Game Two of the world series has been bumped an hour to 7pm eastern to try and allow the game to take place without weather interruption
On October 26th, 2008 the Tampa Bay Rays and Philadelphia Phillies played game four of the World Series with the Phillies routing the Rays by the score of 10-2, adding insult to injury as their starting pitcher, Joe Blanton homered off of Edwin Jackson. Due to the loss, the Rays fell one defeat away from losing the series.
The answer to yesterday’s question was Ryan Rupe, answered correctly by KKoverLongo???
Wrong answers included Joe Kennedy and Victor Zambrano
By The Numbers:
Andrew Miller has put on one of the most tremendous displays in post-season history as he continues to string together scoreless multiple inning appearances.
His run of dominance has to have some front offices around baseball thinking of ways to retool their bullpens. The Rays have tried multi-inning relievers, but not to the great effect the Indians have seen in 2016.
So, onto the trivia, which pitcher in Rays history owns the most relief outings in which he recorded at least two innings pitched?
