Tonight … well, you know.

Here is the lineup for Game 7 of the 2016 World Series. The final lineup for the Chicago Cubs this year.

Chicago Cubs Lineup v. Cleveland Indians (Corey Kluber):

  1. Dexter Fowler, CF
  2. Kyle Schwarber, DH
  3. Kris Bryant, 3B
  4. Anthony Rizzo, 1B
  5. Ben Zobrist, LF
  6. Addison Russell, SS
  7. Willson Contreras, C
  8. Jason Heyward, RF
  9. Javy Baez, 2B

Joe Maddon didn’t change a thing from last night’s 9-run lineup composition, and I heart him for it. Given Corey Kluber’s lefty/righty splits, I especially like Kyle Schwarber up near the top of the order.

However, tonight, I’m sticking with Anthony Rizzo as the Game 7 MVP. He had a much improved approach (and results) against Kluber in Game 4, as we discussed earlier today, has been locked in at the plate for a while (five game hit streak) and I’m looking for him to keep it going.

We’ll have a full Pre-Gamin’ for you closer to the biggest Cubs game … well, ever.
