What channel is the World Series on?

The trio of brothers/pop singers were riding high off their signature hit "MMMBop" by the time the October showdown of the Indians and the eventual champs Florida Marlins rolled around.

Danny Salazar has made the Cleveland Indians' World Series roster.

The atmosphere should be electric in both Chicago, where the Wrigleyville neighborhood surrounding venerable Wrigley Field will be packed with title-hungry supporters, and at Progressive Field, where a fan has set an insistent tone with his rhythmic pounding on a bass drum from the outfield bleachers.

Indians outfielder Coco Crisp attracted more attention.

Salazar, 11-6 with a 3.87 ERA in 25 starts, hasn't appeared in a game since September 9 because of tightness in his right forearm. He may also pitch in relief if rookie Ryan Merritt starts at Wrigley Field.

Salazar pitched a three-inning simulated game on Sunday night, the final hurdle for him to be cleared.

The 112th World Series is sure to end one epic title drought, with the Indians' last triumph coming 68 years ago and the Cubs waiting a mind-boggling 108 seasons since their last championship.

Schwarber was expected to miss the rest of 2016 following the knee surgery but was cleared medically on October 17 to return.

Schwarber was expected to miss the rest of 2016 following knee surgery but was cleared medically to resume playing on October 17.

He played a pair of games in the Arizona Fall League, going 1 for 6 with a double and two walks, and flew to Cleveland on Monday.
