I'm going to give the edge to the Cubs for one reason, Dusty Baker can't seem to win when it counts, and Joe Maddon has a proven record.
Hendricks could be in line to start the Cubs' playoff opener, as the 27-year-old has been sharp of late. Just wasn't getting balls into lefties and away from righties. All being delayed did was make the Cubs look like they won't be denied.
