Corey Kluber's outward emotions fluctuate about as much as those of the Bob Feller statue outside Progressive Field. Cleveland finished the 2017 regular season winning 33 of their final 37 games.

According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Indians are a -142 favorite to win on the moneyline. After tweeting that he had just thrown "the fastest pitch in the history of baseball", Trump fumes when TrackMan data says otherwise.

You know, it's the reality that you're allowed to have 25, but it didn't make it any easier. But I think we have to stay consistent with our approach, the way we approached everything all season long. "I thought Houston might run away with it early in the season, then Boston made a comeback, so I see them in the World Series.
