andrewIndianapolis Indians outfielder Andrew McCutchen is included in a baseball prospects feature in this week’s Sports Illustrated. The print version includes a photo of him shot by team photographer Bill Gentry.

SI calls McCutchen a true center fielder with Major League Baseball lead-off skills. Earlier this summer, Baseball America, a leading baseball publication, named McCutchen as the International League’s “Most Exciting Player.”

With only four games remaining (Aug. 27-30), local fans likely only have a few opportunities to see McCutchen play in an Indians uniform. Baseball prognosticators project McCutchen will be playing for the Indians’ MLB parent club, the Pittsburgh Pirates, next season. McCutchen was the Pirates’ 2005 first round draft pick.

The Indians meanwhile are chasing the 600,000 attendance mark for the season. It would be the first time since 2001 they hit that mark.

  • Our all-star. Stupid me, I bought tickets for Thursday night's Indians game before I found out the Colts play at the same time. I hope Andrew is worth the hassle.

  1. what Steve is doing and if he is on another radio station. That is the station I will listen to.

  2. From the story: "The city of Indianapolis also will consider tax incentives and funding for infrastructure required for the project, according to IEDC." Why would the City need to consider additional tax incentives when Lowe's has already bought the land and reached an agreement with IEDC to bring the jobs? What that tells me is that the City has already pledged the incentives, unofficially, and they just haven't had time to push it through the MDC yet. Either way, subsidizing $10/hour jobs is going to do nothing toward furthering the Mayor's stated goal of attracting middle and upper-middle class residents to Marion County.

  3. Ron Spencer and the entire staff of Theater on the Square embraced IndyFringe when it came to Mass Ave in 2005. TOTS was not only a venue but Ron and his friends created, presented and appeared in shows which embraced the 'spirit of the fringe'. He's weathered all the storms and kept smiling ... bon voyage and thank you.

  4. Not sure how many sushi restaurants are enough, but there are three that I know of in various parts of downtown proper and all are pretty good.

  5. Rick, how does granting theright to marry to people choosing to marry same-sex partners harm the lives of those who choose not to? I cannot for the life of me see any harm to people who choose not to marry someone of the same sex. We understand your choice to take the parts of the bible literally in your life. That is fine but why force your religious beliefs on others? I'm hoping the judges do the right thing and declare the ban unconstitutional so all citizens of Wisconsin and Indiana have the same marriage rights and that those who chose someone of the same sex do not have less rights than others.
