    Is Jake Arrieta an All-Time Chicago Cubs Great?

    Is Jake Arrieta an All-Time Chicago Cubs Great?

    Former Chicago Cubs hurler Jake Arrieta has officially announced his retirement. He arguably had the greatest single season ever by a Cubs pitcher in 2015, however can he be considered an all-time Cubs great?

    Wade Miley, Alec Mills and Andrelton Simmons are all on the cusp of returning to Big League action. When can we expect to see them suit up?

    The Cubs offense has been VERY good early in this 2022 season; however, they have done something VERY bad that could turn into a Major League record. What is it?!

    MLB's Clubs Can Now Use New Pitch Calling Technology. What Will the Chicago Cubs Do With This?

    MLB's Clubs Can Now Use New Pitch Calling Technology. What Will the Chicago Cubs Do With This?

    Major League Baseball is now permitting its teams to use a digital pitch calling device, PitchCom, on the field. This will eliminate the traditional finger signals between catcher and pitcher. Some clubs are all for this technology, such as the Tampa Rays and Colorado Rockies, yet can we say the same for the Chicago Cubs? It shows an effort to speed up pace of play and eliminate sign stealing, however will it work?
    The device itself will signal pitch and location from the catcher's "digital" wristband right into a receiver in the pitcher's ear on the mound. Does this compromise the integrity of the game? We currently have no official word as to whether or not the Chicago Cubs will engage in this technology.
    What is your favorite Wrigleyville bar? We start Part 1 of a multi episode segment that highlights 46 different haunts in the Wrigleyville neighborhood to frequent before or after your next Cubs game at Wrigley Field.
    Plus, let's look ahead to the Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates later on today, as the Cubs will face a familiar face at PNC Park!

JoeThePlumber ,

Finally! The Cubs podcast we’ve been waiting for

Edit: Previous host is gone and we have a new host Andrew Belleson who is here to talk about the actual baseball team! Hopefully we can get an actual season going so we can really here more about the current and future team! But I like where this is headed…

Previous review below:

I gave Joe a chance. But he has handled this season as poorly as possible. If you want a podcast where the host spends the majority of the podcast talking about his personal experiences, the times he was on TV, when he met Anthony Rizzo, the near fights at the park, the dream of throwing out the first pitch, then this is the podcast for you. If you want a podcast that can speak about the team in a rational way with insights into the current and future team no matter who is on it then this is not for you and please let me know if you find one! The end for me was when he told Cubs fans to go away if they dare enjoy a Sox game or the Sox success. Grow up dude. That’s some middle school level of maturity. Go Cubs (but not with Joe Kilgallon)!

Cubs first podcast

A great new host. Andrew is very good at talking about good and bad things the team does.
