Podcast: Jon Greenberg on the Bears, Cubs, Joe Maddon's book, the return of Cubs Convention, Prevagen ads and more
Will the Bears get better announcers now that they're fun and are the Cubs really going to spend?
The Bears are moving up the dial, the Cubs are poised to attempt some “intelligent spending,” the Cubs’ annual ode to sweatpants is returning, and Jon Greenberg of The Athletic drops by to talk about all of it and more.
Will the suddenly entertaining (but still bad) Bears will earn a promotion out of any of their noon Sunday kickoffs or at least better announcer pairings? They discuss why the Bears thought they’d probably never work out a deal with Roquan Smith, is Luke Getsy back in play as a head coaching candidate, and what players the Cubs will be in on and should be in on.
The Cubs have fired another hitting coach, and does it make any sense to steal an old first baseman from other other side of town? Why doesn’t Ryne Sandberg take more crap for quitting in the middle of a season?
If Twitter really implodes how does that effect sports reporting and sports fandom?
What happens to the White Sox when Jerry Reinsdorf shuffles off this mortal coil, and why did Ozzie Guillen really get an interview? And, Jon has read The Book of Joe and the guys discuss that, too.
