It’s Steve’s birthday, so I let his audio sound better than mine for once. But I do almost trick him into two financially crippling bets. I indulge — join?! — the playoff committee conspiracy theorists, a move that Steve believes will increase listenership. Enjoy the new intro/outro and keep the comments coming!
Please just read my recap for CBS Local. I’m choosing, at least for now, to leave it at that as opposed to writing a few thousand more words about perhaps the greatest World Series game ever.
March Madness. Super Bowl. Sudden death. There are several two-word phrases that excite sports fans. Here’s another: Game 7. The Cubs and Indians and their long history of failure will play for the World Series trophy tonight in Cleveland. Joe Maddon made some strange bullpen moves last night, but the Cubs won. Read about the important moments and what to look for tonight in my CBS Local recap.
Hello, readers. I am excited to announce I’ll be covering the University of Michigan men’s basketball team for UMHoops.com. UM Hoops, run by Dylan Burkhardt, has been around since 2007. The site covers the team year-round, from recruiting to game coverage. It incorporates video and advanced statistical analysis. I’ll be covering specific games and delivering news updates and features. The Wolverines are not ranked in the preseason top-25, but they are receiving votes. With their entire starting five returning, they hope to return to the NCAA Tournament for the second year in a row and sixth time in the last seven seasons.
We’re going back to Cleveland. The Cubs fought off elimination with a 3-2 win last night thanks to a big fourth inning and Aroldis Chapman’s eight-out save. Read all about it in my CBS Local recap.
We knew one long championship drought would end no matter who won this World Series. It’s the Indians who are on the brink after a Game 4 win. Corey Kluber was stellar for the second time this series and Cleveland showed some power that the Cubs have been lacking. The Indians will try to close out the Cubs at Wrigley tonight. Read my Game 4 recap on CBS Local.
The Indians relied on their usual playoff formula last night: a short but strong outing from their starting pitcher and a shut-down bullpen. The only run came on a pinch hit single, but it was enough to give Cleveland a 2 games to 1 lead in the World Series. Read all about it in my CBS Local recap.
