The [Wednesday] Papers

"This can only end with maximum pain," Grant Bisbee writes for SBNation.

This is the best-case scenario. This is the worst-case scenario. This is 176 years of collective pain in a steel-cage match, with metal chairs in the ring and the referees pretending to be occupied with someone on the outside.

It's as if I've been preparing for a decade to use words to explain what a World Series Game 7 between the Cubs and Indians will be like, and realizing that I'm completely outclassed. Are there words for this? It's a whale song of supreme glory, of supreme defeat, sung across the planes of time.

Which is a ham-fisted way of saying this: One of these teams is gonna be so damned sad.

I recommend reading the entire piece.



"Less than an hour after the final pitch, all that remained in the Indians' clubhouse was a table full of signed memorabilia and an empty Giant Eagle shopping cart," Zack Meisel writes for the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

"It would have been fitting had a tumbleweed or two blown through the room.

"A few clubhouse attendants filtered in and out, searching for dirty laundry or a locker to organize. The players and coaches had already exited, off to secure some rest amid the relentless chaos that plagues the mind the night before a Game 7.

"Good luck with that."



"For more than 30,000 years, northern Russia's cold permafrost has preserved the small bodies of two furry and wide-pawed cave lion cubs, one of them in almost pristine condition, a new study found.

"The two mummified cubs, nicknamed Uyan and Dina after the Uyandina River where they were found, were just about 1 week old when they died, likely crushed by 'extensive collapse of the sediments in the den,' the study's researchers wrote in a summary of their research."



Even the little ones are getting into the act. #Cubs

World Series Notebook 7: The Chapman Series
The moment when Joe Maddon absolutely lost his mind was not when he brought Aroldis Chapman into Game 6 on Tuesday night, but the moment when he did not take him out.
