Podcast: Maybe the Cubs should get Shohei after all!
Not sure if you've noticed, but he's pretty good.
David Brown is back from vacation (and he wasn't robbed) and the guys take the bold stance that darnit, the Cubs SHOULD find a way to trade for Shohei Ohtani. They really went out there on a limb for that one.
They talk about how much a team will have to give up to get Shohei and how much they'll have to pay him.
They also discuss how long it would take Cubs players to realize that Willie Harris was gone if he went to manage the White Sox.
They pick a new team to root for late in the season, and wonder if an announcer got his old toupee photos expunged from the Internet.
How will the weird first round of the playoffs work and is home field advantage even a thing in baseball these days? All that, and more.
