Cubs @ Indians Game #7 in "Addison & Clark" 773 Hardball!...Look what the wind blew in off Lake Erie as we get #FlyTheW vs #RallyTogether in a one game winner take all scenario!...It's Hendricks vs Kluber...#MaddonBall vs Tito...and 2nd City Hardball vs the "Mistake on the Lake"! #CHCvsCLE #WorldSeries #FlyTheW #MaddonBall #RallyTogether #FallClassic2K16

There is nothing more to say as the 2K16 Fall Classic moves into game 7 status as its winner take all. The Chicago Cubs seemingly "Dead in the Water" entering Sunday Night's Game in Wrigley had no life and it looked like a Cleveland Sweep at the Friendly Confines and another parade route for the Land!

Then the Cubs go it going Sunday for a 3-2 "W" behind Ace LHP Jon Lester and then rode Jake Arrieta and the Cubs Ash, Maple or Bamboo to a 9-3 smashing of the Tribe last night. The plot thickens tonight as the North Siders have yet to beat Tribe Starter Corey Kluber with his wing man Andrew Miller waiting in the wings.

In order for the Cubbies to bring it home they must get Kluber off the "Bump" and hit that Indians early  and often. On the other hand the Tribe needs to say patient at the "Dish" and get to Kyle Hendricks changing of speeds approach and get to that Cubs Pen.

Let's look at the "Tale of the Tape":

Look for the Cubs to be aggressive versus Kluber early and often to avoid seeing Kluber after he settles in and if that happens that is tough sledding for the Cubs. The Tribe will attack Hendricks and the Cubs starter needs to be better than good. 

Its game #7 they said this is what you dream of growing up and it will be the team that embraces the moment but gets to playing their game first that will be victorious. Who wins this one...Pick'em?
