:WRIGLEY FIELD SHOWDOWNRight-hander Kyle Hendricks (13-11) starts for the Chicago Cubs in the opener of their big season-ending series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Right-hander Adam Wainwright will be on the mound for the Cardinals. While the Cubs have clinched a postseason berth Blake Swihart Jersey , they are still in the chase for the NL Central title, holding a one-game lead over Milwaukee. St. Louis, shaken after getting swept in a three-game series at Milwaukee, is one game behind the Dodgers for the NL’s second wild card, with Los Angeles one game back of the Brewers. Hendricks is 4-1 with a 1.37 ERA in his last six starts.HEADING UP INTERSTATE 94Milwaukee also has clinched no worse than a wild-card berth and will be sending right-hander Zach Davies (2-7) to the mound against Detroit. The Brewers are 4-8 in his starts, and opposing batters have a robust .267 batting average against him, well above the major league average.MILE HIGHLeft-hander Kyle Freeland (16-7) is on the mile-high mound at Coors Field for streaking Colorado in the start of a season-ending series against the Washington Nationals. Colorado has won seven straight Rick Porcello Jersey , matching its longest winning streak this season, and opened a one-game lead over the second-place Dodgers in the NL West.OLD RIVALSThe Dodgers close the regular season at the San Francisco Giants and start left-hander Hyun-Jin Ryu (6-3), who allowed four hits over six scoreless innings last weekend at San Diego. In his last outing against the Giants, Ryu gave up three hits in six scoreless innings.WHAT’S LEFT IN THE ALNot much is left to be decided in the AL, where East champion Boston hosts the wild-card winner, the New York Yankees or Oakland, in Division Series opener on Oct. 5 and West champion Houston is home against Central winner Cleveland as the Astros seek their second straight World Series title. New York needs one win or one Athletics loss during the season’s final weekend to ensure the wild-card game will be played at Yankee Stadium. Left-hander J.A. Happ (16-6 http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authentic-j.j.-hardy-jersey , including 6-0 with the Yankees) is scheduled to start Friday night at Boston, which lines him up to pitch against Oakland on regular rest. A’s right-hander Mike Fiers (12-7) is slated to pitch Friday at the Los Angeles Angels. With a little over two weeks left until the regular season begins, the fringe of the Opening Day roster is still to be determined."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Diamondbacks Farm TeamsGameday ThreadsDiamondbacks NewsDiamondbacks Game ReportsFang FoodSnake EDTShareTweetShareShareSnake Bytes 3/12: Decisions to be MadeTommy Gilligan-USA TODAY SportsArizona Diamondbacks News[Camden Chat] A Birdland Salute to Adam Jones - Some of you may not realize that what Paul Goldschmidt meant to the fanbase of the Arizona Diamondbacks, Adam Jones was the equivalent on the Baltimore Orioles. The two also just so happened to be teammates on team USA during the 2017 World Baseball Classic. I took a stroll over to the Orioles’ SB Nation site, Camden Chat, for some perspective on the impact of his loss and was not surprised by what I found. Much like none of the writers over at Viva El Birdos can quite appreciate Goldy the way that we can here, it’s also difficult for us to measure the value of Jones the way that the Orioles fanbase can. He was that monumental of a player for them. One of the commenters linked an 8th inning at bat from Jones when the Orioles were locked in a division race with the New York Yankees in 2012. It’s well worth a watch. Jones quickly falls behind 0-2 Adam Jones Jersey , then David Robertson uncorks a breaking ball near his head, and on the very next pitch Jones breaks a 6-6 tie in the eighth inning with a leadoff solo home run to left field. Truly special.[D’backs.com] Jones to get plenty of playing time in Arizona - How Jones is utilized is of particular importance. The Diamondbacks have done well with defensive positioning under this front office, and hopefully that strength can counteract some of Jones’ defensive decline. It appears that the team still seems prepared to give Ketel Marte some time in center when the regular season begins. Jones can also provide a day off for David Peralta against a difficult left handed starting pitcher.[AZ Central] Adam Jones adds depth, versatility to Arizona Diamondbacks’ roster - [The Athletic] Rosenthal: An intriguing option for Kimbrel; Greinke’s Hall candidacy; Mets’ brewing position battles; more notes - Two D’backs related topics to unpack in this piece. Ken Rosenthal comments on Jones’ free agency journey and Zack Greinke’s case for the Hall of Fame. If Arizona hangs on to Greinke for the remainder of his contract, there is a chance that he stamps his resume for Cooperstown under our watch. Around the League[MLB.com] Goldy on being traded to Cards - BRB. Just going to go bash my head into a wall.[CBS Sports] Miguel Cabrera pulls off hidden-ball trick with smooth pump fake in spring training game - Time inevitably catches up with all MLB players, but the best can rely on their experience as their athletic ability declines. Watch Miguel Cabrera make Ehire Adrianza look absolutely foolish with the most exciting defensive play in baseball, the hidden ball trick.[Sporting News] Are baseball players happy? A personal memory of Marvin Miller - In 1982 Manny Machado Jersey , Thomas Hauser and Bill Hoffman sent a questionnaire to members of the MLBPA seeking to determine if baseball players were happy. The responses to the questions are still relevant today. Now more than ever, the dominant baseball conversation attempts to analyze and quantify everything a baseball player does. It can become all too easy to forget that there is an actual person behind those numbers. Perhaps we should applaud Adam Jones for more than his ability on the field.
