Down the Stretch: AZL Cubs

It’s August 13th, do you know where your favorite Cubs minor league team is in the standings?  Do you know if they will make the playoffs?  The minor league baseball season is winding down, so what better time than now to find out where each team stands in their respective playoff races.  First up, the AZL Cubs. 

 AZL Season Ends:  August 28, 2012

AZL Playoff Procedure:  The three division winners will be joined by a Wild Card team in the playoffs. The team with the best record will meet the Wild Card team and the other two division winners will meet in one-game playoffs. The two winners will meet in a championship game

It’s a dog fight to the finish with the AZL Athletics to see who will capture the East Division crown.  Luckily for the Cubs there is a wild card in play, and at worst it looks like the Cubs will lock that up if they can’t get the division.

It’s been a tremendous season for the AZL Cubs, and they look like they are well on their way to the playoffs.  However, because it has been such a good season, a lot of the talent that has gotten the Cubs to where they are is being moved up the pipeline (Soler, Vogelbach).  That is a good thing, a really good thing, it will be up to the guys who remain in Arizona to get the job done and I think they will.

Thanks for reading,
