Podcast: The Cubs' quest for Cody Bellinger feels familiar
It's a low stakes repeat of their worst contract ever
On this episode of the pod we have our favorite guest of all-time.
You’ll want to check it out as he is less than thrilled by possible Ian Happ contract extension talks, gives you an update on the Cubs quest for a new shortstop, how will they live without the stars they’ve non-tendered and how the possibility of adding Cody Bellinger feels like a short-term duplication of their worst long-term move in a generation.
He also makes fun of Bruce Levine’s Jose Abreu to the Cubs talk and the Cubs Convention.
And that’s not all. He diagnoses Justin Fields’ shoulder injury, explains what they’ll do with their high draft pick and why the McCaskeys are fine with Jeff Joniak being awful at his job.
There’s also some brief Bulls’ talk and some book and TV recommendations.
