Sportsman of the Week Ending 11/6/2016

The story in sports last week was the Chicago Cubs, and they were led by MVP candidate Kris Bryant.  With their backs to the wall in Game 6, Bryant set the tone in the first inning with a home run to give the Cubs a 1-0 lead that would balloon to 3-0 after the offense got rolling.  In Game 7, he chipped in two more runs on a hit and a walk.  Over the crucial games in Cleveland, Bryant was 5-9, 4 runs and a walk (.600 OBP).  Most importantly, he cluttered bases for the red hot Anthony Rizzo and Ben Zobrist to keep the Cubs line moving.  And delivered the first World Series title since World Series V in 1908.  With Bryant, they won World Series CXII
