Cubs, Phils To Close Out Weekend Series Live Today On TBS With Rubber Match

Courtesy: Turner Sports

National League foes the Chicago Cubs and Philadelphia Phillies will close out their three-game weekend series this afternoon as Major League Baseball’s 2018 season inches closer to its finale.

The Phillies took the series’ opener Friday 2-1 over Chicago.  That game was a pitcher’s duel as it wasn’t until the top of the 5th inning that the game’s first run was scored by Chicago. the Phillies tied it up in the bottom of the 6th with a run of their own.  After Philadelphia tied it up, the game was forced into extra innings, and the Phillies would take advantage of the overtime setup, adding one more run for the 2-1 final.

Pat Neshek (2-1) was credited with the win for the Phillies while Steve Cishek (4-2) took the loss for Chicago. This was despite fellow Chicago pitcher Jose Quintana (11-9) pitching six innings in the game. Quintana allowed just one run on three hits, one earned run, and one walk while striking out seven Phillies batters.

Philadelphia starter Nick Pivetta (7-10) meanwhile was almost as solid as Quintana, allowing only one run and one earned run on five hits while walking three Cubs batters and striking out six.

Chicago controlled Game Two right from the start, scoring two runs in the first.  two more followed in the third with three more runs coming in total between the seventh and ninth inning.  Philadelphia was held to just one run in the game. That lone run came from outfielder Odubel Hererra.

The Phillies’ woes weren’t limited to just that lone run.  Pitcher reliever Austin Davis had his cheat sheet taken by umpire Joe West during Saturday’s game.  The sheet told Davis how to throw to the Cubs’ batters, and while not illegal, should not have been in Davis’ possession according to MLB rules section 6.02 (c) (7), which bans pitchers having any “foreign substance” on their person during a game.

Jon Lester (14-5) is expected to get the start for the Cubs in today’s series finale.  Lester’s last time on the mound was Tuesday against the Mets, and he had a bit of a rough time in that game.  Over the course of six innings, he allowed three runs and three earned runs on five hits while walking three batters, allowing one home run and striking out three Mets batters.

Aaron Nola (15-3) is currently expected to get the start for Philadelphia.  His last time on the mound was also Tuesday, in this case against Washington.  The Nats took that game 5-4 in nine.  While Nola got the start, Neshek took the loss in the game for the Phillies.

Nola had a rough time in Tuesday’s game, pitching seven innings.  Over the course of that time, he allowed two runs, one earned run and two walks on four hits while striking out eight Washington batters.

Looking at each team’s overall stats, the numbers don’t favor fully one team over another. Philadelphia is playing host to Chicago for the series, and has been far better at home so far this season than at home, going 43-24 at home and 29-38 on the road.

Chicago meanwhile has also proven better at home than on the road, going 44-24 at home and 35-31 on the road so far this season.

Chicago has gone 8-2 in its last 10 games and sits atop the National League Central standings with just a narrow 3.5 game lead over second place St. Louis.  Philadelphia meanwhile sits second in the National League East, but has gone 4-6 in its last 10 games.  At the same time though, Philadelphia is only two games behind the division-leading Atlanta, so this afternoon’s series closer will have major playoff implications for both teams.

Brian Anderson will have the call for this afternoon’s broadcast on TBS.  He will be joined in the booth by analyst Ron Darling for additional commentary.  Coverage is currently scheduled to start at 1:30 p.m. and the game will be blacked out in Chicago.

NL Central Foes, Chicago And St. Louis, Close Series Live Today on TBS

Courtesy: Turner Sports

National League Central foes, the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs wrap up their four-game weekend series this afternoon, and the make or break game for the divisional foes will be broadcast live on TBS.

Coverage of today’s game is scheduled to start at 2 p.m. ET, with Ernie Johnson and Ron Darling on the call.  The Cubs have taken two of the series’ games while the Cards only have one win, so today’s game could mean a series split if the Red Birds Win or a series win for the Cubs if they take the “W”.

Miles Mikolas (MY-koh-lahs) (10-3) is scheduled to get the start for St. Louis in today’s game.  His last time on the mound was July 15 against the Cincinnati Reds, another NL opponent.  The Cardinals won that game 6-4.

Mikolas pitched four innings in the game, but John Gant (3-3) was credited with the win.  Mikolas allowed 3 runs, 3 earned runs and 2 walks on 6 hits while striking out two during his time on the mound.

Jose Quintana (8-6) is set to start for Chicago.  His last time on the mound was 12 days ago on July 10 against San Francisco and was credited with the win in the game, having pitched six innings and allowing only 3 hits and 2 walks over that time while striking out 3 batters.  He allowed no runs, no earned runs or even home runs either.

Looking at those numbers, today’s series closer seems to lean in favor of the Cubs.  However, a deeper look at the numbers shows either team could walk away with the win today.  The host Cubs are 30-17 at home so far this season versus 27-23 on the road while St. Louis, which sits third in the NL Central, 7.5 games back from the division (and National League) -leading Cubs, is almost as good on the road as at home, going 26-24 on the road and 24-24 at home.

The Cards’ most recent win came Saturday against the Cubs, so they’ll be looking to even out the series at two games each as it closes.  The Cubs meanwhile will look to rebound from that loss so it can improve to 7-4 in its last 10 games.

‘2016 World Series Collector’s Edition’ Is A Win For Cubs Loyalists, MLB Fans Alike

Courtesy: MLB Productions/Shout! Factory

Courtesy: MLB Productions/Shout! Factory

The 2016 World Series is one of the most important fall classic series that Major League Baseball and its fans have seen in over a century.  It was through this year’s World Series that “next year” became “this year” and “it can happen” became “it did happen.”  Next Tuesday, Cubs loyalists and baseball fans alike will be able to own the complete 2016 World Series for themselves thanks to MLB Productions and Shout! Factory in the form of the 2016 World Series Collector’s Edition: Chicago Cubs.  This piece is a must have both for Cubs loyalists and for MLB fans in general.  That is due in no small part to the 8-disc set’s overall audio and video presentation.  That will be discussed shortly.  The companion booklet included in the set is just as important to note in examining the set’s presentation as its overall presentation.  Last but hardly least of note here is the set’s bonus disc.  Each element is key in its own right to the box set’s presentation.  All things considered, this box is the year’s top new sports box set, the year’s top new family box set, and one of the year’s top new overall DVD/BD box sets.

Shout! Factory and MLB Productions’ 2016 World Series Collector’s Edition: Chicago Cubs takes three swings and hits it out of the park all three times.  This set is the year’s top new sports box set, the year’s top new family box set and one of the year’s top new DVD/BD box sets.  That is due in no small part to the overall presentation of the 7-game series in the set’s main feature.  Presented in the set’s main feature is the 2016 World Series in its entirety from the first pitch to the last out.  All seven games are here just as they were originally presented on FOX.  The commercial breaks are even included in each game, just without any commercials.  So that speeds things up at least a little bit, making the overall viewing experience even better.  If that isn’t enough for fans, MLB Productions and Shout! Factory have offered fans the option to experience the game with standalone radio broadcasts from the teams’ home radio stations in place of the TV call and even in Spanish.  On the surface that might not seem like much, but in the bigger picture of the series’ presentation here, it is very important to note.  Some people prefer radio broadcasts to the TV call whether in English or another language.  Others prefer the TV call to radio.  So what MLB Productions and Shout! Factory have done here is honor all of the game’s fans.  They are to be highly commended for paying such attention to even this detail.  Of course, those familiar with MLB Productions’ past World Series know this is nothing new for those productions.  That makes MLB Productions even more deserving of applause here.  It shows that MLB Productions has lived up to its reputation once more in this box set.  Keeping that in mind, it’s just one way in which MLB Productions has impressed yet again with this set.  The companion booklet included in the set adds just as much enjoyment to the set’s presentation.

The full, diverse TV and radio presentation of the 2016 World Series in the 2016 World Series Collector’s Edition: Chicago Cubs is in itself a hugely important piece of the set’s presentation.  It allows audiences to re-live the 7-game series in its entirety not just on TV but on radio while still getting to see it on TV.  What’s more, Shout! Factory and MLB Productions have allowed fans here to experience it simultaneously on radio and TV both in English and Spanish.  This is a huge statement of the dedication to the game’s fans across the board.  In and of itself, it makes this element a hugely important piece of the set’s presentation.  It is only one important piece of the set’s presentation, too.  The companion booklet that is included with the set lives up to MLB Productions’ reputation just as much as the presentation of the game on disc.  Once again, MLB Productions has included a complete box score for each game.  That means it presents the numbers not just for the Cubs but for the Indians, too in each game.  Audiences even get some interesting trivia with each game to enhance the viewing experience.  Just one of the interesting pieces of that trivia that is included in the set’s companion booklet comes in the outline of Game 7.  The booklet notes with this game;s information, :The Cubs are the first team to come back from a 3 – 1 deficit and win World Series Games 6 and 7 on the road since the 1979 Pirates.”  Audiences also learn of the Indians in the notes for Game 3, “The Indians’ Game 3 shutout was their fifth in the 2016 postseason, establishing a Major League record for a single postseason.”  As an added note, fans also learn here that the Indians’ game three World Series win meant the team won all eight postseason games when it scored first.  These are just some of the interesting tidbits that are shared through the series’ companion booklet.  There is far more that audiences will enjoy when they purchase the set for themselves or that special MLB fan.  Each game even includes a note of the temperature at the start of each game, the games’ attendance and much more.  The booklet gets that specific with each game’s outline and then some.  When this is all taken into consideration, it becomes even more clear why the collection’s companion booklet is just as important to its presentation as its overall presentation.  It is just one more piece of the set’s presentation that stands out.  The inclusion of the Cubs’ NLCS Game 6 win over the Dodgers rounds out the set’s most important elements.

The overall TV and radio presentation of the 2016 World Series in the 2016 World Series Collector’s Edition: Chicago Cubs and the set’s companion booklet are both key components of the set’s presentation.  The overall TV and radio presentation of the series and its presentation of the series in its entirety gives audiences a full viewing experience in the utmost sense of the term.  The set’s companion booklet adds even more depth and enjoyment to the set’s presentation with its bonus trivia and fully in-depth box scores.  Both elements are key by themselves and together.  However, they aren’t the set’s only important elements to note.  The bonus NLCS Game 6 presentation included in the set rounds out the set’s most important elements.  MLB Productions and Shout! Factory have included in this set, the Cubs’ 5 – 0 shutout of the Dodgers in Game 6 of the 2016 NLCS as a bonus for audiences here.    For those who might not know, the NLCS was just as interesting as the World Series.  The Cubs opened the series with a solid 8 – 4 win over Los Angeles,  But then, Chicago fell behind 2 games to 1 in games 2 and 3, only to come back and win the next 3 games and take the series.  Thanks, again, to MLB Productions and Shout! Factory, audiences get to see the Cubs’ dominating NLCS Game 6 in its entirety.  It was that game that catapulted the Cubs into the World Series.  So audiences get to see that pivotal game and the World Series in whole, and even follow along at their own pace through the set’s companion booklet while learning some interesting facts along the way, too.  Clearly, all three elements play their own huge part in the set’s presentation.  All things considered, they show that MLB Productions has lived up to its reputation once again as has Shout! Factory, the leading name in home entertainment (at least in this critic’s view).  They make this set in itself yet another home run for Cubs fans and MLB fans alike. When all of this is combined with the equally impressive 2016 World Series Film, which was released Dec. 6, the whole of both sets is a grand slam for any MLB fan and any Cubs fan.

2016 World Series Collector’s Edition: Chicago Cubs is yet another home run for MLB Productions and Shout! Factory.  That is evident through an overall TV/radio broadcast that once again lives up to fans’ expectations of MLB Productions’ titles.  The same can be said of the set’s companion booklet.  Once again, MLB Productions has added so much depth to another presentation through its fully in-depth booklet, complete with game-specific trivia.  The bonus NLCS Game 6 disc included in the set rounds out its most important elements.  Audiences get to see that game in its entirety just as each of the World Series’ seven games.  Each element is clearly important in its own right to the game’s presentation.  All things considered, they make this set yet another home run for MLB fans and Cubs loyalists alike. When the set is joined with the newly released 2016 World Series Film, the two together make for a grand slam for all involved.  The 2016 World Series Film is available now in stores and online.  It can be ordered online via Shout! Factory’s online store.  The 2016 World Series Collector’s Edition: Chicago Cubs will be available next Tuesday, Dec. 13.  It can be pre-ordered online now via Shout! Factory’s online store.  More information on this and other titles from Shout! Factory is available online now at:

The 2016 World Series Official Film Is A Big Win

Courtesy: Shout! Factory/MLB Productions

Courtesy: Shout! Factory/MLB Productions

History was made this year in Major League Baseball.  That is because next year finally became this year for the Chicago Cubs.  After 108 years, America’s favorite lovable losers finally ended the curse of the billy goat and won baseball’s most coveted prize.  Baseball fans can relive that history making moment for themselves and more thanks to MLB Productions and Shout! Factory beginning December 6th with The 2016 World Series.  This double-disc set looks back on the 2016 World Series between the Cleveland Indians and Chicago Cubs.  The program’s central story is its key element.  It will be discussed shortly.  The program’s bonus material is just as important to its presentation as its central story.  It will be discussed later.  The platforms on which the film will be made available round out is most important elements.  One could also note the program’s editing is worth noting in examining its presentation, too.  All things considered, Shout! Factory and MLB Productions’ presentation of The 2016 World Series is another home run for any baseball fan regardless of team loyalty courtesy of MLB Productions and Shout! Factory.

The 2016 World Series official film from MLB Productions and Shout! Factory is a home run for any baseball fan regardless of fans’ team allegiance.  That is due in part to the program’s central story.  The story, narrated by actor Vince Vaughn (Wedding Crashers, The Break-Up, Fred Claus), follows the Cubs’ road to the Major League Baseball Championship.  It includes interviews with members of both teams’ lineups.  They add even more emotion to the store and in turn make the story even more gripping.  From the high of winning the second game to the come from behind climb that the Cubs had to make to eventually win Game 7, baseball fans will be left on the edge of their collective seats even if they got to see each game live on TV or in person.  The teams’ interviews, Vaughn’s narration, and the use of the game footage join together to keep viewers completely enthralled throughout the course of the story’s 90-minute run time.  The editing used in the footage makes the story even more powerful.  It will be discussed later.  Getting back on topic, the story, with all of its combined elements, proves to be one of the most important of this program’s elements if not its most important element.  It’s just one of the program’s important elements, too.  The program’s bonus material is just as important to note in examining its overall presentation as its central story.

The story at the center of The 2016 World Series official film is an important part of the program’s presentation.  It could be argued, in fact, to be the program’s most important element.  It is just one of the program’s key elements, too.  The program’s bonus material is just as important to its presentation as its story.  It is important first and foremost because it covers not just highlights from all seven games of the 2016 World Series, but also from the Cubs’ historic season and even the parade in which the team was welcomed home as heroes. Audiences get to see in the regular season highlights, key moments from the Cubs’ games against the Phillies, Reds, and others as they made their way to the top of the league.  The clinching moments include highlights from even more games.  Much like the regular season highlights, they show the team’s power and what made the Cubs this year’s team of destiny.  The World Series highlights put the finishing touch on the central story, reminding audiences once more what made this year’s World Series one of the game’s best in ages.  The parade highlights put the finishing touch on the bonus material, rounding out their mini-story and is just as certain to leave baseball fans (and especially Cubs fans) shedding tears of joy without the slightest regret.  Of course the story that is told through the bonus material is itself just one reason that the bonus material stands out.  Audiences will note in watching the bonus material that it is presented chronologically.  It takes viewers through the regular season, into the post season and to the end of the road this year.  This is hardly the first time that MLB Productions has done this, and MLB Productions is to be applauded for once again taking such an approach.  When all of this is set alongside the program’s central story, the two elements make even clearer why The 2016 World Series official World Series film is so enjoyable presentation.  They are not its only important elements, either.  The program’s triple-platform presentation rounds out its most important elements.

The story at the center of The 2016 World Series official film and its companion bonus material are both key to the program’s overall presentation.  Both by themselves and together, they tell a story that will keep baseball fans across the broad completely enthralled.  This applies even for fans who watched every game live on TV or in person.  They are not its only key elements, though.  The platforms on which the film will be made available round out its most important elements.  Audiences will be happy to know The 2016 World Series  will be offered on a single disc DVD/Digital package and deluxe DVD/BD/Digital combo pack.  The DVD/digital combo pack features the film, obviously, on DVD and includes a digital download code while the deluxe edition features the film on a double-disc presentation that also includes a digital download code.  One of the discs is a DVD presentation of the film and the other a Blu-ray presentation.  The DVD/digital combo pack’s average price is $20.22.  That is important to note because that average price is right along the lines of Shout! Factory’s own price point of $20.99.  So while Shout! Factory’s price for the DVD/digital combo pack might not be the cheapest price on the surface, it is actually very affordable considering the combo pack’s average price.  The average price for the DVD/BD/Digital combo pack is $27.61.  Its list price is $34.99.  Considering this and Shout! Factory’s price of $27.99, audiences will pay about the same regardless of which outlet they choose.  That makes Shout! Factory’s store a great place from which to order both the BD/DVD/digital combo set just as much as the DVD/digital combo pack. When this is set alongside the film’s central story and its bonus material, all three elements show clearly why The 2016 World Series official film is a home run for any baseball fan.  It boasts a gripping story, enjoyable bonus material and a relatively affordable price point across the board.  That’s not even touching on the program’s editing, which adds even more depth and enjoyment to the program.  All things considered The 2016 World Series proves to be one of 2016’s top new sports documentaries and a piece that every baseball fan should have in his or her own home DVD/BD library.

The 2016 World Series official film is one of this year’s top new sports documentaries, and a piece that every baseball fan should own regardless of team allegiance.  That is due to a number of reasons beginning with its story.  It presents a story that will keep baseball fans across the board completely engaged.  The bonus material included in the program’s presentation adds even more depth and enjoyment to the program with its chronological presentation of the Cubs’ 2016 season.  The program’s price point both on DVD/digital combo pack and BD/DVD/digital combo pack is relatively affordable, too.  Considering the general price of similar combo packs, those price points are especially important to note.  Each element is important in its own right, including even the program’s editing.  All things considered, The 2016 World Series official film is, again, one of this year’s top new sports documentaries and a doc that every baseball fan should own regardless of team allegiance.  It will be available Tuesday, December 6th online and in stores.  More information on this and other titles from Shout!
