The Indians have given fans in Cleveland what they’ve earned: their team returning home and avoiding the possibility of seeing a Cubs sweep in Chicago. The Tribe did it with their scintillating 1-0 victory over the Cubs at Wrigley last night: thank you, discount Coco Crisp, Josh Tomlin, Andrew Miller, etc.
On the political field, FBI director James Comey gave Team GOP and the Trump campaign what they think they deserved: disclosing, months after clearing Hillary Clinton of criminal wrongdoing in her use of e-mails, that a new trove of e-mails has been uncovered in the case.
After a thorough sifting, the new batch seems likely to show nothing damaging. But the temporary furor may affect voting in House and Senate races, nudging some GOP candidates to victory and keeping the party in control of the upper chamber. For the moment, however, Hillary’s lead going into the presidential election in a week-and-a-half looks safe.
