Podcast: The Cubs are really something
And that something isn't good or surprising
The Cubs are oozing back to the bottom, and some people are shocked by this.
Let's look back at how the free agent signings have worked out, what we can expect to get out of Matt Mervis and Christopher Morel, and why having three catchers is a complete waste of time. We'll discuss why there's no reason to call the tiny little infielder back up from Iowa, why Mike Tauchman should be rooting for Cody Bellinger to return ASAP, and why the Cubs should create a fake ainjury for Tucker Barnhart like they did Edwin Rios.
Also, why won't the Cubs play Morel in the field, or make a sensible and obvious change to their batting order. And, a case for why they shouldn't be buyers or sellers at the trade deadline, but they should be active.
Then, a quick look at what's really going on with the Bears' stadium stuff, and the return of HBO's secretly greatest show.
Oh, and when I recorded this I thought the Cubs were off tonight. Then I realized they're playing and I thought, "Ugh, I have to watch another one." Seems like a good sign...in June.
