After dropping three in a four game series with the Pittsburgh Pirates, The Cincinnati Reds will be heading to the windy city Monday to start a three game series with the Chicago Cubs.
The only left to be determined for the cubbies this season is whether or not they will finish with 100 wins, which would only require them to win 6 of their last 14 games.
While other teams are doing everything they can to produce wins in order to make the postseason, Joe Maddon is already trying to piece together his starting rotation for the month of October.
The Chicago Cubs will send Jason Hammel out to the mound on Monday.
Despite having a solid year this season, Hammel has only won 3 of his last seven starts and has a 5.45 ERA during the span. He has given up 22 earned runs off of 43 hits in his last 37 innings of work.
Monday could be an audition to earn some starting time in the postseason for Hammel.
Chicago is coming off of a four game series in which they dropped three to the Brewers and although winning 100 games has a ton of meaning for the North Siders, it’s unclear just who will be on the starting line up as they coast through the remainder of the 2016 season.
The Reds will send Tim Adleman to the mound against the Chicago Cubs Monday who will trying to pick up his 3rd win of the season.
He has a record of 1-3 his previous seven games with a 4.58 ERA. During the time he has given up 18 earned runs off of 34 hits in 35.1 innings of action.
The righty has a 1.27 WHIP through his last seven and will look to improve his numbers against a Chicago offense that has been a hitting machine this season.
Cincinnati has won six of their last 10 games, scoring 57 runs in the process, but, they are playing the Cubs.

Free Cincinnati Reds vs. Chicago Cubs MLB Prediction:
Any team can be dangerous when all they have to play for is pride and that’s about all Cincinnati is left with this season.
The rivalry between these two goes back long before my days and if they do nothing else this season, the Reds would love to say they played a part in keeping the Cubs under 100 wins, or at least took a series from them in Chicago.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Chicago ML
All that being said, the Cubs are not going to start a series against Cincinnati at Wrigley with a loss after dropping three out of four to that team up north. Maddon will have none of that, season on coast or not.
