Podcast: Cubs with Tom Loxas
Is Ross holding them back, how close did they come to giving up and when does PCA arrive?
Tom Loxas is back to talk about the Cubs and whether or not David Ross can avoid sabotaging the playoff run. They discuss Ross’ moves and his perceived leadership qualities, Jed’s take on how close they came to selling and how Dansby Swanson shamed him into trying to win. They talk about rebuilds in general and how the Cardinals missed a golden opportunity this year. They have thoughts on what huge part of the Cubs organization is handicapping the excitement level with fans and they talk about Cody Bellinger and Shohei Ohtani’s upcoming free agentness. When does PCA arrive and what’s he going do about fitting his name on his jersey? All that and more.
Note: We recorded this just hours before Shohei’s Tommy John Disease relapse, but he’s still going to be the biggest target for everybody in free agency.
