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. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
