The [Thursday] Papers

"If you're going to lose a World Series game, you might as well let the bottom fall out," Zack Meisel writes for Cleveland.com.

"Go for broke. Throw every bad habit, every baseball malady out there. Get the Trevor Bauer inefficiency, the Bryan Shaw nibbling, the Danny Salazar rust-shaking, the dormant lumber and the groan-inducing defense all out of the way in one fell swoop.

"This wasn't the type of World Series loss that leaves a fan base with a stinging sensation, like the one Tribe fans suffered on Oct. 26, 1997. This Oct. 26, 2016 defeat was more of the dull ache variety, only fans in attendance couldn't feel it because the bone-chilling temperatures numbed every finger and toe in the venue.

"Little went right for the Indians in Game 2, and now Terry Francona's bunch will venture west for three games at Wrigley Field, with the World Series knotted at one game apiece."

It's like the Cubs had nothing to do with any of it!

World Series no big deal at Cleveland.com, where this is top of site:

The top story in Cleveland as I write this:

"Police investigating a street gang tied to dozens of smash-and-grab ATM thefts raided three homes in Cleveland and two in Euclid early Thursday.

"SWAT teams with assault rifles stood outside the homes while investigators conducted the searches about 9 a.m.

"Officers took several bags of evidence from each home. An officer in Euclid carried out a large plastic container with evidence."
