The World Series that begins Tuesday in Cleveland will include a rarity - beyond the Chicago Cubs taking part in it. Each team has a pitcher who played on Newhall Hart High's 2008 team. Trevor Bauer of the Indians and Mike Montgomery of the Cubs will have something of a reunion.
A sense of anticipation that has been brewing all summer built toward a crescendo for Theo Epstein Friday night, when the Chicago Cubs president took his dog for a walk around his Lakeview neighborhood home, which is seven blocks away from Wrigley Field .
Momentum can be fickle and fleeting in the postseason, where a game, a series and ultimately a season can turn on one pitch, one hit, one play.

Joc Pederson dropped a two-out bunt toward the mound in the second inning Thursday night. Chicago Cubs pitcher Jon Lester fielded the ball, spun and short-armed a one-hop throw to first baseman Anthony Rizzo, who made the catch for the third out. As Lester walked off the mound, he glared toward...
Those who watched John Lackey pitch for the Angels from 2002-2010 were not surprised by the Cubs right-hander's extreme reaction to Chicago second baseman Javier Baez throwing away a potential double-play grounder in the first inning of the Cubs' 10-2 Game 4 victory Wednesday night.
Reserve outfielder Matt Szczur did not make the Chicago Cubs' playoff roster for the National League Championship Series, but his bat did. After striking out in his first two at-bats of Game 4 Wednesday night, Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo switched bats, hauling Szczur's lumber - which he has...

Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
