MLB today announced the game times and broadcast information for the 2016 World Series which may or may not become very relevant to the Chicago Cubs in the next few days.

All as you’d expect, with games at 7pm CT across the board, and on Fox.
Cubs fans are accustomed to the schedule by this point, as they’ve had exclusively night games throughout the playoffs. With three kids, including a new baby, all of whom are early-risers, I’m working a really tasty sleep debt. Totally worth it, though I’m going to sleep for most of November.
The Indians, by contrast, have played several day games – though they’re in the middle of an extremely long break during which they can rest up and re-adjust their body clocks. I suspect their bloggers are well-rested, too.
The Indians’ opponent will be decided this weekend at Wrigley Field, as the Cubs hold a 3-2 NLCS lead over the Dodgers.
