The Athletic's Sahadev Sharma and Bleacher Nation's Brett Taylor talk all things Cubs baseball and sometimes a little bit more.
Episode 65: Guess Who's Back?
Uh... I guess it's been a while. We're back and talking a sloppy start to the Cubs season. Bad weather, bad starting pitching and bad situational hitting have all been a theme early on, but we try to find some positives too.
Episode 64: Try Out Some of Those Bullpen Dance Moves
Brett and Sahadev start off with a little eclipse talk (of course) then bicker about whether Game of Thrones is good anymore or not. They finally get to some baseball and talk about Javy Báez's crazy Sunday, the Cubs bullpen and why Justin Wilson may be struggling.
Episode 63: Hey, You Think You're Better Than Me?
Brett and Sahadev talk about the Cubs poor play in San Francisco, two tough series' losses to a pair of playoff teams and Willson Contreras' injury and the fallout from it. Sahadev also talks about taking his son to his first game at Wrigley.
As a celebration of the duo’s triumphant return, I must finally make my full and complete recommendation of this program.
Smartest Cubs talk
The guys can be dorky and annoying, and are frequently condescending about emotional fans (versus rational analysts like themselves who never react badly to losses), but they know their stuff and provide very smart insight and predictions.
Great stuff, but PLEASE
Get into the meat of things quicker. Nobody listens in to hear about your kids or your diets! Maybe you could spend 10 minutes beforehand catching each other up on that stuff and then start the show........
