This young Cubs fan might not have to wait as long as his fellow fans have
Carlos Santana made his last appearance in the outfield in 2012, but the Indians are considering playing him in left field in Game 3. Manager Terry Francona was noncommittal Friday. "If we decide to do it and he messes up a ball, you can blame me," Francona said. "Actually, you can blame me and blame Mr. Selig a little bit too." That was a joking reference to Bud Selig and the DH-no DH schism that always poses challenges in the World Series.
In case there's any lingering doubt that this is all just a dream, Cubs fans: The scoreboard says it all as Wrigley Field prepares for its 2016 World Series moment.
"When you go to Wrigley or Fenway it feels like the way baseball is supposed to be." -Tito Francona
Terry Francona said they are still thinking about the possibility of Carlos Santana playing left field. He's going to watch him take fly balls this afternoon and check with him on his leg. He said if he plays and screws up a fly ball we should blame Terry and Bud Selig.
