Chicago Cubs 2016 NL Central Championship Gear

progressive field indiansHow about 18 runs and a series win?

I believe there’s the potential for inclement weather in this one, so hopefully they’ll be able to get it in. Having to reschedule a single game between these teams at Wrigley AND one at Progressive Field would be a pain in the butt.

Indians starter Danny Salazar has given up a ton of homers so far this year, and, while that might not continue indefinitely, here’s hoping it continues for one more start. Because otherwise, he’s been really, really good.

It’ll be hard to live up to last night, but here’s hoping for a solid, relaxing, fun time with the Cubs coming out on top. There actually haven’t been a ton of games like that this year.
