What to watch for tonight in Game 2 of the World Series:---TIME CHANGEFans planning to see the first pitch will need to tune in earlier than expected. The start time was moved up an hour to 7:08 p.m. EDT because theres rain in the Cleveland forecast. Major League Baseball announced the shift Tuesday night midway through Game 1.Id rather do that than have the game start at 8, and then get caught in the latter part of the game with some rain. So I think its a good idea, Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.Indians manager Terry Francona was fine with the change, too.We can handle that, he said. I dont care what time they tell us to play. ... Im going to be here anyway by 10 (a.m.). So it doesnt really matter.PINKIE POWERAll eyes at Progressive Field are bound to be on Trevor Bauers right pinkie when he starts for Cleveland in Game 2 of the World Series. He sliced the finger earlier this month while fixing one of his many drones. Then in Game 3 of the AL Championship Series at Toronto, blood began dripping onto the ball, the mound and his uniform, and he lasted only 21 pitches.Bauer says hes set to face the Cubs. He threw a simulated game this week with gauze over the finger -- a no-no during actual action -- and there was no bleeding.Im going to go out there and execute to the best level of my ability, and its going to be what its going to be, he said.JUST OK JAKEJake Arrieta gets the ball for Chicago in Game 2 with a mostly unimpressive October resume. He dominated in his first postseason start, pitching a shutout against Pittsburgh in last years NL wild-card game. But hes 1-2 with a 5.82 ERA in four playoff starts since, including a 4.91 ERA in two starts this postseason.The 2015 Cy Young Award winner was solid this season but hasnt replicated last years success. Chicago limited Arrietas innings during the regular season hoping to keep him fresh for a late-October run, though, and the World Series would be the perfect time for a resurgence.MANAGING MILLERIndians reliever Andrew Miller threw two scoreless innings in Game 1, but also tossed 46 pitches -- his most since 2011, when he was a starter.So, will the AL Championship Series MVP get the ball in Game 2?You know, I dont know, Cleveland manager Terry Francona said after a 6-0 win over the Cubs in the opener. I just think that theres a lot that can happen tomorrow. One, we might not have the lead. Two, it might rain. Three, we could have a lead and he wont be available for as much.The Cubs got two hits and two walks off Miller.I liked our at-bats overall against Miller, Chicago manager Joe Maddon said. I liked the fact we got him up to 50 pitches, also. So there were a lot of positives with that. We struck out a lot, but Ill defend the fact that we had some good at-bats.DECISIONS, DECISIONSChicago whiffed 15 times in the Series opener and was shut out for the third time in six games. Will manager Joe Maddon juggle his lineup looking for offense?Chris Coghlan started Game 1 in right field over slumping Jason Heyward, who signed a $184 million contract to join the Cubs last offseason. Coghlan struck out in both his at-bats. With another right-hander pitching for Cleveland, will Heyward be on the bench again?STICKING WITH SCHWARBERCubs manager Joe Maddon said Kyle Schwarber will absolutely start at designated hitter again after the young slugger went 1 for 3 with a double off the right-field fence and a walk Tuesday in his first big league game since April 7. Schwarber, who also struck out twice, had been sidelined since having surgery to repair two torn ligaments in his left knee.I thought the bat speed looked good, Maddon said. You could see on the finish sometimes maybe the brace grabs him just a little bit. I kind of noticed that. Otherwise there was no kind of negative atmosphere surrounding his at-bats. I thought they were outstanding, actually.Schwarber is the franchise leader with five career postseason homers. All of them came when he was a rookie last year.

With Claudio Ranieri arriving at the King Power Stadium to replace Nigel Pearson, the reaction on the whole was of surprise. Few predicted Leicester would stay up, let alone finish top half and beyond, while many noted the Italians lack of top flight success in previous jobs. Leicester will be crowned Premier League champions if they win at Old Trafford Astonished... A huge punt... Incredible... thats what they said then, but now the script has been turned on its head, and Leicester will be crowned champions if they win at Manchester United on Super Sunday, live on Sky Sports 1HD. Phil ThompsonOn Sky Sports: They should really have signed his agent. He got all those jobs for him! I may be quite wrong, but I dont think hes ever won anything. Hes been there, seen it, not done it, at all those places. Nigel Pearson did ever so well, and for Ranieri to get this job was quite incredible. I hope he does well, because he is a nice guy, but hes fortunate.Matt Le TissierOn Sky Sports: With Leicester I think it could be a massive struggle this season. I think he might struggle with the spirit there. Nigel Pearson was replaced by Ranieri in the summer Gary LinekerOn Twitter: Claudio Ranieri? Really?On BreatheSport: Claudio Ranieri is clearly experienced, but this is an uninspired choice by Leicester. Its amazing how the same old names keep getting a go on the managerial merry-go-round.Dietmar HamannOn Twitter: Cant believe Leicester appointed Ranieri ... Great club, great fanbase but Im afraid MK rather than Old Trafford season after next.Harry RedknappOn Twitter: Ranieri is a nice guy, but hes done well to get the Leicester job. After what happened with Greece, Im surprised he can walk back into the Premier League. Leicesters story is one of most surprising fairytales in English football history Tony CotteeOn Sky Sports: Im astonished. I just didnt see this one coming. Obviously there have been many people linked to the job but as far as Im aware, Ranieri wasnt one and for me, it is a strange appointment.They made a massive risk getting rid of Nigel Pearson who did such a good job football-wise towards the end of last season. To appoint Ranieri now, bearing in mind where he has been the last 10 years, is a huge gamble.Robbie SavageOn BBC: Ranieri, good manageer but for me not Leicester.dddddddddddd If you play for the Foxes you need someone you can relate to as a manager. ONeill, Pearson are managers the players can relate to. Id have gone back to ONeill or Lennon. It will be a relegation battle whoever was manager. Big name, bad choice in my opinion. Time will tell. Hopefully I am wrong.Frank SinclairOn BBC: If I was a player at Leicester still I would be excited given the players he has worked with in the past - very excited.But for the next manager at Leicester, the job in hand is stabilising the club. I dont think they are looking to win things yet. If they can be a mid-table team then he will be doing a fantastic job. Ranieri has led Leicester to the top of the Premier League Alan SmithIn the Daily Telegraph: Replacing Nigel Pearson with Claudio Ranieri can only be described as a huge punt. The risk is that City now lose some of the energy, aggression and spirit that pulled them to safety.Paul MersonSpeaking on Sky Sports in September: Leicester have started well and theyll be well safe. They can beat teams and I love the Nathan Dyer signing… he could easily get in Tottenhams team.Stan CollymoreIn the Daily Mirror: Last seasons Great Escape will have instilled incredible belief at the King Power. Having met Nigel Pearson on a number of occasions last season, he was in no doubt that the Foxes would claw themselves to safety. Riyad Mahrez celebrates with Jamie Vardy during a vital win over Crystal Palace Unfortunately, the script has changed. Im not convinced about Tinkerman Claudio Ranieri. Pearson had the dressing room. The players believed in him. Ranieri has a job on his hands earning the same respect.Dont underestimate the loss of Esteban Cambiasso, either. But I think the players believe. That could be enough. It may be just as messy as it was last time, though.Michael OwenOn Twitter: Right then here we go again #Top6Bottom3: Top 6: Chelsea, Man Utd, Arsenal, Man City, Liverpool, Spurs.Bottom 6: Bournemouth, Leicester, Watford.
