CLEVELAND — It’s the pairing that many baseball fans wanted. The teams with the longest droughts since last winning the World Series, squaring off in the Fall Classic.
It’s the Cubs and their 108-year gap since winning the Series, against the Indians, who have gone 68 years.
Something’s got to give.
The opening game is Tuesday at Cleveland’s Progressive Field with Game 2 Wednesday night. The series will then shift to Chicago for Games 3, 4, and if need be, 5.
The Indians advanced with playoff wins over the Red Sox and Blue Jays while the Cubs eliminated the Giants and Dodgers.
