Good morning baseball fans! I know I don’t have to tell you what happened last night, but in case your power went out or you live in the woods, the Cubs have officially come back from being down 3-1 in the series to force a Game 7. November baseball is the best baseball, and the best baseball is happening tonight at 7pm EST. There’s no “next game”, tonight we’ll find out who will be our 2017 World Series champions. Is anyone else vibrating from excitement? Is it just me?
