Baseball Magic

As the son of a lifetime Cleveland Indians baseball fanatic who was named after one their most notable pitchers "Rapid Robert Feller", I'm obviously rooting for my late, great dad AJ Soto II and Robert's team. Bob Feller, The Greatest Cleveland Indian, dies at age 92.
But since Cleveland has already won the American league championship, we are assured of competing for the best team in America.

However, the Libra in me must acknowledge this special opportunity for The Chicago Cubs to once again play in the World Series. In fact, it could be their first time since 1945. The Cubs host the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS (FS1, 8 p.m. ET) Tonight.

After scoring only 25 runs in the first seven games of the postseason, the Cubs have come alive, scoring 18 runs in Games 4-5 against Los Angeles. Chicago faces a huge task, with three-time Cy Young winner Clayton Kershaw, another winning pitcher. Kershaw threw seven shutout innings in the Dodgers' Game 2 win, will look to extend the series to a Game 7 with another dominant performance. If this happens, the two teams may have to play on Sunday night.
