A look at whats happening all around the majors Friday:---OPEN UPEdwin Encarnacion and the slugging Blue Jays visit Cleveland for Game 1 of the AL Championship series, with Corey Kluber starting for the Indians against Marco Estrada. Jose Bautista and wild-card Toronto hit eight home runs in their three-game sweep of Texas in the AL Division Series. Kluber was magnificent in his postseason debut, pitching three-hit ball for seven shutout innings as Cleveland swept Boston.ROTATINGCubs lefty Jon Lester is all set to start the NL Championship Series opener on Saturday night at Wrigley Field. The rest of Chicagos depends on the health of Kyle Hendricks. The righty exited in the NLDS vs. the Giants after being hit in the forearm by a comebacker. Hendricks threw a bullpen session Thursday and the Cubs are waiting to see how the major league ERA leader feels before confirming him for Game 2.FEELING BETTERBlue Jays reliever Francisco Liriano has recovered from the concussion he received when he was struck on the back of the head by Carlos Gomez in the ALDS. The lefty is expected to be cleared in time for Game 1 vs. Cleveland.TALK TIMEThe Giants want Madison Bumgarner to stick around. Two days after San Francisco lost to the Cubs in the NL Division Series, general manager Bobby Evans spoke with Bumgarner and told the aces reps the team is ready to begin talks on a new contract. The lefty signed a $35.56 million, six-year deal through 2017 that includes $12 million club options for 2018 and 2019. Fake Penguins Jerseys .

Pittsburgh Penguins Store . Batiste, who briefly signed with the Eskimos in 2006, has spent time with several NFL teams including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Washington Redskins. The city of Cleveland has waited 52 years to celebrate a championship, yet on the night the Cavaliers will receive their rings and the banner is raised to the rafters, somehow this team has become a bit of an afterthought within its own hard-luck city.The Cleveland Indians opening Game 1 of the World Series against the Chicago Cubs across the street from the Cavs opener against the New York Knicks has added an extra element of electricity within a fan base that has little experience celebrating champions. But theyre quickly getting the hang of it.LeBron James and the Cavs have waited all summer for the jewelry that accompanies being the first team in history to rally from a 3-1 deficit to win an NBA championship. The fact theyll get their rings on the same night James good friend Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks are in town makes the evening even more fascinating.The Knicks, after all, greatly aided the Cavs title by giving them J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert in a midseason trade two seasons ago.Its just a special night, its something that no one can ever take away from you no matter how many missed shots, no matter how many turnovers, no matter how many games that youve lost, they can never take that moment away from you, James said. Im happy not only for every guy here, but our fans and the organization. Its something thats going to live in the archives forever.James and the Cavs also faced the Knicks on an equally emotional night two years ago when James made his grand return to Cleveland. The emotion of the night seemed to overwhelm the Cavs, who lost to an inferior Knicks team.Jammes, however, is 2-0 on previous ring nights with the Miami Heat.ddddddddddddts difficult because you just reflect on last year when you should be worrying about this year, but its human nature, James said. Were not there celebrating this year, were there celebrating our accomplishment from last year.Our fans have the right to celebrate that, we have the right to celebrate that and its unfortunate that we also at the same time now got to get back to a new season, but thats what the job is and we have to do that. It should never take away from the night itself.New York, conversely, is hopeful it can make a postseason push in the East with the debut of its new-look roster.New guard Derrick Rose participated in just three practices since he was cleared of sexual assault charges last week. Rose missed more than two weeks due to the trial, including the final five preseason games. He hasnt played in a game since Oct. 4, but coach Jeff Hornacek doesnt believe Rose will be on any minute restrictions.Anthony missed the playoffs the last three years in New York and now must stand and watch again Tuesday while James, one of his closest friends in the league, collects his third ring. Anthony is still searching for his first, although budding star Kristaps Porzingis, Rose and new center Joakim Noah should at least inch the Knicks back into the postseason.I believe in this group of guys, Anthony told Newsday. I believe in this team. I think well have a special year. ' ' '
