Jenrry Mejia has resurfaced in the Dominican Winter League. Mejia tossed a scoreless relief inning with one walk and one strikeout and earned the win in Licey's 4-3 opening-day win against Escogido on Friday. Mejia was permanently suspended from MLB in February for a third positive PED test, but the suspension does not extend to winter leagues, including in his native Dominican Republic. Mejia is allowed to apply to commissioner Rob Manfred for reinstatement to MLB next February -- one year after the ban was imposed. Even if reinstated, which is no guarantee, he would have to sit out the 2017 season since the requirement is to be sidelined for a minimum of two years after a lifetime ban. Mejia's New York-based attorney announced in July an intention to sue MLB, but there was never a subsequent announcement of a filing.

Much colder than it looks at Wrigley Field. Probably a 40 degree drop in temperature from game 5 to game 6 of NLCS

Good morning from the corner of Addison and Clark in Chicago. People are already at the ballpark hours before tonight's Game 6 of the NLCS.

Game 6 of the NLCS is Saturday night in Chicago. If the Cubs win, the celebration will be 'slightly' more boisterous as they would advance to their first World Series since 1945.

Unlike the Cubs' bats the past two nights, all is quiet inside Wrigley Field a day before Game 6 of the NLCS.

Series price at the Westgate for the Chicago Cubs before past four NLCS games: -160, +155, -170, -360

The Cubs are just one win away from their 1st World Series in 71 years. For Chicago, it's both beautiful and scary.
