Political consultants Dan Curry and John Pearman have it all backwards. Dan is a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals' fan living in the Chicago area and John is a lifelong Chicago Cubs' fan living in the St. Louis area. They mix it up every week, talking about one of baseball's best rivalries.
"Pummeling the Pirates"
Dan and John talk about the the Cardinals' hot streak and the Cubs cold spell as the Cardinals and Brewers put some distance between them and other teams in the NL Central.
"Cards, Cubs show life"
Dan and John talk about the resurgent Cards and Cubs, both who went 4-2 after a sluggish start to 2021. Each team swept a series. The Cubs finally started hitting and the Cardinals finally started pitching.
"Seriously, another series loss"
Dan and John talk about the collective slow starts of both the Cubs and Cardinals. They have lost 7 of 9 series so far -- not the start either team was looking for. Is there anything on the horizon to change this trend?
"A weekend to forget"
Dan and John talk about a lost weekend for the Cubs and Cardinals. The Cubs got bounced twice by the Pirates and the Cardinals got slapped around by the Brewers. It's a mediocre start for both teams in the NL Central.
"We predict, you decide"
Dan and John make their 2021 predictions in the NL Central as the MLB season prepares to begin on Thursday. Both Dan and John predict the same number of wins for the Cubs, but there are significant differences in how they view the Brewers and Cardinals.
"Who will rise above mediocrity?"
Dan and John talk about fast approaching 2021 season in the first podcast of the year. The Cardinals picked up Nolan Arenado and not much else in the off-season. The Cubs cut their budget then loosened the purse strings later in the winter. Prediction sites aren't impressed with the Cardinals, Cubs, or the Brewers. Who will rise above expectations?
Fans? Friends? Both.
Dan and John seem to have been friends almost as long as they have been fans, which gives this cast more of a barstool feel. Sure there's data and opinionated insight, but also the kind of good natured ribbing that fits this classic Midwestern rivalry.
