Cubbies Crib: Morning Marquee 10/31


The Boston Red Sox capped off an improbable run from last place to World Series champions Wednesday night with their first championship victory at Fenway Park in 95 years. The Sox join only the 1991 Minnesota Twins to go from last place in their division to a World Series title. David Ortiz was named the World Series MVP for his two HRS, six RBIs, a .688 average and an astounding 1.948 OPS.

In Cubs news, a mockup right field sign was lifted into right field to test out the obstruct it would give the rooftops. The sign was lifted by a crane and moved around while Cubs management and others looked on from the Sheffield Skyboxes. Dallas Beeler had a solid outing in the Arizona Fall League; he had eight ground ball outs, two strikeouts, allowed two hits, walked none over four innings. He improved to 3-0 with a 3.86 ERA in a hitters heavy league.
