NEW YORK -- In the broiling heat of a July afternoon at Wrigley Field, several New York Mets stood around the batting cage discussing the starting pitcher for the Chicago Cubs. The man's name was Ferguson Jenkins, and he was the ace of the Chicago staff. The year was 1969."That Jenkins doesn't even sweat," Art Shamsky said.
