Last time Wrigley Field hosted a World Series game, it was also home to the Chicago Bears. Today, Matt Szczur is running routes on the field prior to Game 3.

This season, Josh Tomlin threw 38% fastballs. Only four pitchers threw a lower %: Dickey, Tanaka, Sabathia, McHugh.

Soler starts vs. RHer Josh Tomlin today because Tomlin is a reverse-splits pitcher... LHers hit .229 vs Tomlin, RHers .299

No real surprises for Joe Maddon's lineup for Game 3. Jorge Soler gets another start in right field as righty Josh Tomlin of Cleveland is much tougher on lefties than righties. Willson Contreras bats 5th and is behind the plate.

Cover prices are starting to drop around Wrigleyville. Two bars, John Barleycorn & Old Crow, had hoped to get $200, now asking for $100

World Series resumes with Game 3 tonight in Chicago (8:05 p.m. ET). The ViewFromVegas is the Cubs are -210 home favorites over the Indians in Game 3 and -250 to win the series. The over/under is 8 (-120) at most Vegas though the Westgate and Station casinos have gone to 8.5 with reports of the wind blowing out at Wrigley Field (note: I still like the under).

From the concourse up to that first view of the Wrigley Field grass, this is the moment when the magnitude of a World Series game calling the Friendly Confines home will sink in for many fans tonight.

Red Sox announce top prospect Yoan Moncada sprained his left thumb in Arizona Fall League. He has returned to Boston and won't participate in baseball activities for at least two weeks. He's expected to be ready for the start of spring training, the team notes.

Six hours until game time and Wrigleyville is already packed for a day Cubs fans have been waiting 71 years to enjoy.

Panic in the World Series ticket market. StubHub closes sales 6 hours before Game 3. 900+ unsold tickets transferred to other sites.

My grandfather was the biggest Cubs fan I ever knew, and on a summer afternoon in 1985, we both rooted for the Cubs and for Puerto Rico. May the Cubbies win it for my 'abuelo'
