Podcast: Mark Gonzales - Pointless Exercise Baseball Podcast
And, is Franmil Reyes the next Big Papi? Sure. Seems entirely plausible.
Longtime baseball beat writer Mark Gonzales stops by the podcast to talk about the Cubs (and a little White Sox–mostly so Andy can make fun of Eloy trying to catch a flyball).
They discuss the Franmil Reyes era, what the Cubs should do with shortstop next season, why they didn’t trade Willson Contreras or Ian Happ and if they’ll trade Happ this offseason.
Why did Frank Schwindel get to hang around so long, how great is it that we don’t have to watch David Bote and what is it that Nick Madrigal actually does?
They talk about Joe Girardi’s role on Marquee.
And, Andy has a great plan for how the Cubs can actually use two designated hitters at the same time. All that, and much more.
