Mets personnel believe Yoenis Cespedes will seek a five-year deal after opting out of his contract following the World Series. Cespedes is expected to vacate the two years and $47.5 million remaining on his current contract in order to test the free=agent market. The Mets are expected to still pursue Cespedes, but are pessimistic about their chances of landing him. Then again, they were pessimistic a year ago as well, and Cespedes returned.

Kyle Schwarber - 1-for-6 in the Arizona Fall League, 0-for-4 in the Cubs' regular season, 3-for-6 in the World Series. That's about right

Kyle Schwarber has his second RBI single of the night as he hit a ball hard up the middle with Ben Zobrist on third base and the infield playing halfway. He's now 3 for 6 in the WS with 2 RBIs.

Since we made a big deal of the Indians' 70-1 mark when they get a lead of three or more runs, it's only fair to note that the Cubs 79-4 mark in those spots was the third-best in baseball. (per ESPN Stats & Info)

Anthony Rizzo's evening so far: 2 walks, 2 runs and an RBI double in 3 trips, 23 pitches seen. I think he's out of that funk he was in!

Cubs extend the lead! Ben Zobrist rips an RBI triple to right, scoring Anthony Rizzo from 1st to give Chicago a 3-0.

Jake Arrieta has not allowed a hit through 4 innings which is 2 innings shy of the longest stint in the WS by a Cubs pitcher. Ed Reulbach threw 6 innings in 1906 against the White Sox without giving up one.

The Cleveland Cavaliers are enjoying Game 2 of the World Series from a suite. They appeared on the video board during the fourth inning with J.R. Smith exhorting the crowd, along with Kevin Love, LeBron James, Richard Jefferson and others. The fans seemed pleased.

Coley Harvey ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cavs' J.R. Smith had a message to deliver on the Progressive Field video board between half innings. (It involved that shiny thing on his finger)

I'm a little bummed I forgot to mention that Anthony Rizzo was the 1st Cub to drive in a run in a WS game since Bill (Swish) Nicholson in Game 7, 1945

The best double-play combination I have ever seen -- Omar Vizquel and Roberto Alomar -- worked in this ballpark. Jason Kipnis and Francisco Lindor looked a whole lot like them on a huge 4-6-3 turn in Game 2.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Trevor Bauer can't make it through the fourth. He threw one less pitch, 87, than Corey Kluber, who went six in Game 1.

Ted Feller, 73, came to tonight's game from Sioux Falls, S.D. Ted says his father's grandfather and Bob's father's grandfather were brothers
