Tuesday, the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder (along with Oakland A’s third baseman Ryon Healy) hit Disneyland...
The temperature in Cleveland for Game 2 of the World Series on Wednesday night at Progressive Field was cold, but nothing conveyed that better than a Terry Francona postgame quote. “I tried to go to the bathroom in the 4th inning and couldn’t. That tells you enough,” Francona said after the game. Ooph. Yeah, that’s pretty bad. The weather for the game was listed as 43...

Andrew Miller, for once, didn’t look invincible. After relieving Corey Kluber in the top of the seventh inning, he walked Kyle Schwarber — who answered all of the questions about rust and timing in that fantastic at-bat — and then gave up a single to Javier Baez, loading the bases with nobody out. Down 3-0, this was the Cubs shot at winning Game One, and potentially running...
