World Series Game 7 Preview: Chicago Cubs @ Cleveland Indians

And it all comes down to this..... Game 7 of the 2016 World Series. Tonight we finally answer the question of which World Series drought will come to an end. Will it be the drought of the Cleveland Indians who have not won a World Series since the 1948 Fall Classic or will it be the long-suffering Chicago Cubs and their fans who have not won a World Series since the 1908 season? We are just a few hours away from finding out and I just can't wait for it.

In this decisive Game 7 where winner takes all Terry Francona will send Corey Kluber to the mound for the Indians while Joe Maddon will send Kyle Hendricks to the mound with the city of Chicago and the Curse of the Billy Goat on his back and shoulders.

Hendricks led all of MLB in ERA in 2016 and will get the ball tonight looking to do what he did all season long, keep the other team off the scoreboard. Hendricks has done just that in his last two starts allowing zero runs combined while also lowering his postseason ERA to 1.31.

Kluber has been awesome this postseason and has already given the Indians victories in Game 1 and Game 4 of the World Series. Kluber will once again be pitching on short rest, the third time in a row actually, in the must-win game for both teams. Kluber has made five starts this postseason and has posted a 0.89 ERA thus far for Cleveland.

The game will be played at 8:08 pm ET and can be seen on FOX. Game 7... it all comes down to this.
