I saw a good post this morning on Twitter, asking whether J-Up could be voted both Biggest Disappointment and Comeback Player of the Year for 2016. That's pretty much the truth of it. He is on quite a heater right now. 8 HR in his last 15 games and a few of them have come in clutch situations.

Brad may make a lot of mistakes but he seemed to have struck gold with when he gave Upton 3 days off.

Hell of a win for the Tribe's bullpen last night but down another starter...need Kluber to win on short rest tonight big time so Bauer's finger can heal (if possible)

Quite the world where the Indians trade a top-shelf prospect to the Yankees for an unhittable reliever. And Donald Trump is a presidential nominee. And M is good at football.

Fucked up times.

And Wiz made an insightful post a few weeks back. It's the End Times. The Seventh Seal will be an ESPN cfb game less than 4 hours because they decided to cut back on the commercials.

I'm going on record as saying Bauer is not going to be useful for the remainder of the playoffs. You need some kind of Star Trek medicine to heal that mess so quickly.

Cubs win Cubs win - going to the WS vs the Tribe...Not a good look either way for the Detroit Lions

Would like to see Cubs win myself and the Lion take the mantle (sort of speak) for longest drought in Pro Sports (?) with out winning a Title

Do they now have the longest drought of not playing for a title?

One playoff win in the Super Bowl era. What's that -- 51 years? And, if I'm not mistaken, no home playff games in 23 seasons. It's amazing that a franchise could be so goddamn awful for so long.

The Browns last won in '64...last played for a title in '65 I think. Last playoff win was in 1994.

The Lions last won one in the 1950s, I believe.

Go Cubbies; fuck Cleveland, or better yet, fuck that entire abortion of a state.

Someone posted it up a few weeks ago. The Lions currently have the 5th longest championship drought. It will be 4th after the world series though as both the Cubs and Tribe have longer (1st and 4th longest respectively).

Cardinals are definitely on the list. 1947 or 1948. I forget which year they beat the Eagles.
