BN Podcast Episode 18: Alfonso Soriano Trade Plans, Matt Garza Recovery Plans, and Humor Aplenty

bnpodcastimagesmallIt’s the eighteenth episode of a super awesome podcast featuring me and Sahadev Sharma. You can listen to the podcast there below, or download it for later listening. You can also subscribe via iTunes. Here’s your iTunes link, and you can also find it by searching in the iTunes store. For those of you who use other feed-catching services, here’s the podcast feed. For those of you just tuning in who want to catch up on prior episodes, here’s the whole lot.

As always, you can send questions, comments, etc. to the official podcast email address (podcast AT bleachernation DOT com) if you want your thoughts included on a future show. Today’s emails got us into some great topics, including Starlin Castro’s attitude and the plan for Matt Garza (trade, extension, etc. – what’s he going to want to do after the injury stuff?).

This week we get into the Alfonso Soriano trade rumors of late, and whether the Cubs are taking an unreasonable risk by not pushing him out the door right now. We also talk about projection systems – including Sahadev’s fancy new system – and a humor Twitter account that takes on Cubs fans on Facebook.

Plus making shrines in your basement, spinning bow ties, salting Wrigley Field so the ivy stops growing, and cheese in your pockets. Good stuff all around.


Brett Taylor is the editor and lead writer at Bleacher Nation, and can also be found as Bleacher Nation on Twitter and on Facebook.

    Ketchup on a “hot dog” is fine…
    German curry (their version of BBQ) on a frankfurter.

    Nice ‘cast as always. Keep it up! Only thing that would’ve guaranteed a 5 star rating was some water breaking at 1 hr, 15 min

    It’s called currywurst in Germany. You can get curry ketchup at European food stores. Ranks right up there with Nutella as Europe’s gift to our cuisine.
