These teams are so evenly matched, so World Series deprived, I (along with ANYONE you’ll ask) just don’t know who to give the edge.
Well, the Indians have the best starting pitching. Oh no wait, that’s the Cubs with the former Cy Young winner, the current Cy Young and runner up favorites. Well, the Cubs have the most explosive offense – Kris Bryant (MVP) Anthony Rizzo (basically MVP 2). Oh no wait, that’s the Indians. That’s Kipnis, the best power hitting 2B in the game. That’s Lindor, and somehow Napoli. Ok, yeah, but the Indians have the best relief pitching, that’s how you win in October. Andrew Miller has struck out 40/35 batters this postseason or something. And he doesn’t even always close. Oh no wait, that’s the Cubs, they have the wifebeater who throws 1000 MPH.
Both teams have lights out defense, this is just impossible to call. I think it has 7 games written all over it. No matter how many games it goes, this will be absolutely, positively riveting. Can’t wait for it to start tomorrow.
