World Series Game 6: Cubs at Indians (7:00 CT) – Lineups, Game Thread, Watch

Chicago Cubs

In the absence of baseball (grumble), Marquee Sports Network is re-running the top-14 games from the Chicago Cubs historic 2016 World Series run. And since I freakin’ love that idea, I thought we might play along by posting regular Pre-Gamin’ posts before each and every one.

Game 6 of the World Series is tonight at 7:00 – the 13th televised event in this series (Game 1 of the NLDS, Game 2 of the NLDS, Game 4 of the NLDS, Game 1 of the NLCS, Game 4 of the NLCS, Game 5 of the NLCS, Game 6 of the NLCS, World Series Game 1, World Series Game 2, World Series Game 3, World Series Game 4, World Series Game 5).

 Alright, from now on, we’ll pretend like we’re back on that night. Mostly. 

Jon Lester and the Cubs did their job at Wrigley Field with the series on the line a couple nights ago, bringing things back to Cleveland for yet another potential elimination game. Fortunately, Chicago has Jake Arrieta on the mound, and you know what? I think this guy is pretty good. He may not have the postseason experience of Jon Lester … but I don’t think there’s many people I’d rather have out there instead of him with the series on the line.

Either way, it feels like the Cubs offense might tell the story of the game tonight. Just a hunch.

Win tonight and force an anything-can-happen Game 7 tomorrow. Come on, Cubs. You can do it.
