#Cubs and Hendricks face Reds

Kyle Hendricks starts on Sunday in the Cubs regular season finale. Hendricks leads the Majors with a 1.99 ERA, and looks to become the first Cubs pitcher to lead the league in ERA since Ray Prim in 1945 (2.40). He could be the first Cubs pitcher to lead the Majors since Bill Lee in 1938 (2.66). Jorge Soler is back, starting in left field. Here’s the lineup:

Fowler CF

Bryant 3B

Rizzo 1B

Zobrist 2B

Russell SS

Heyward RF

Soler LF

Contreras C

Hendricks P

I see the Cubs` game Friday October 7 versus the wild-card team is scheduled for 8:15 PM CT. This conflicts with the club`s agreement with the city to avoid scheduling night games on Fridays. I assume the city is more than willing to grant a dispensation, given the special circumstances.

The Mets are sending Tebow to the Arizona Fall League. Big mistake! This circuit is reserved for elite prospects on the doorstep of the major leagues. That surely does not describe a category where Tim Tebow belongs.Tim will play for the Scottsdale Scorpions, a team made up of Mets, Phillies and Angels prospects. The Mets did Tim no favors. I predict he`ll struggle to bat .100 during his time there.

Plan on attending a couple Solar Sox games on OCT 21 & 22. Don’t know if they will be playing Scottsdale or not?
Cubs this year, James Farris, Ryan McNeil, Duane Underwood Jr, Victor Caratini, Ian Happ and Eloy Jimenez.

Yes, jasper, you are as knowledgeable about the AFL and the quality of its prospects as anyone. According to today`s “New York Post,” Gleyber Torres and Greg Bird will be teammates of Tebow on the Scorpions, so the Yankees should have been included in that list of teams which sends prospects to the Scottsdale club.

All 30 teams send prospects. there are 6 AFL teams. To make a team, 5 clubs makeup one.
Example the Mesa Solar Sox are made up of the Cubs, Blue Jay, Indians, Mariners and A’s.
Glendale Desert Dogs are made up of Cardinals, White Sox, Astros, Nationals and Dodgers.

So all teams are represented with 6 to 8 players.

Thanks for that, jasper. If y`all observed last night`s Indians/Red Sox contest, you saw why the Cubs` FO viewed Andrew Miller as their first choice when wanting to trade for a Yankee left-handed reliever in July.
