The amount of Cubs fans I know jumped up after that 2016 World Series.  Strange. 

I was pulling for them then. But you are spot on. There were a lot more after their WS title. 

Also I'm not sure I've ever seen a replay go against them. 

As I'm typing this, the Cubs caught another break with a missed check swing call.

**** I missed they took Blackmon out?

Yes. He's been out for a while. Both teams have liberally used the double-switch and their bench tonight. Brian Snitker would be proud. Here's the Rockies double-switches.

  • 7th inning with 2 outs. Rockies doubled switch putting catcher (C) Drew Butera hitting 9th and pitcher Adam Ottavino hitting 8th. Chris Iannetta out of the game.
  • 8th inning with 2 outs. Rockies doubled switch putting outfielder (RF) Carlos Gonzalez hitting 8th and pitcher Wade Davis hitting 1st. David Dahl moved from RF to CF. Charlie Blackmon out of the game.
  • 10th inning with 2 outs. Rockies doubled switched putting infielder (1st) Ryan MaMahon hitting 1st and pitcher Chris Rusin hitting 6th. Ian Desmond out of the game.
  • 12th inning with 2 outs. Rockies doubled switched putting catcher (C) Tony Walters hitting 6th and pitcher Scott Oberg hitting 9th. Drew Butera out of the game.

The pitcher's spot for the Rockies in their batting order has gone 9th, 1st, 6th, and now back 9th. It's down right crazy looking at the play-by-play. It was crazy and hard to follow.
