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. This week’s set got us into thoughts on acquiring a second baseman in trade, the particulars of Jorge Soler’s unique contract, using fringe prospects to improve a deadline deal, and the future of Albert Almora.

This week, we talk about the state of the Cubs’ rebuilding project, and whether there are reasons to be concerned or encouraged. We get into hating on the Cardinals and (some) neck tattoos. We also check in on a little FacebookCubs tweeting.

We also learn from Sahadev about the elegant art of hitting on scouts. Let me get your digits. I mean the digits on your radar gun.

    Thanks for tackling my question guys. It was just something I’d been thinking about for a while that I wanted some resolution on.

    • Brett

      Well thanks.

  • someday…2015?

    Listening to it now. You guys are better then First Take and Mike and Mike combined.

    • Brett

      Thank you – although that first part could be an insult. Low bar.

      • someday…2015?

        Yea sorry about that. I should of said you guys are better then Mike and Mike and Oh, those hacks Skip Bayless and Stephen A. don’t even belong in the same discussion as Brett and Sahadev!

    First time I’ve listened to this and I thought Brett you did a good job. Seemed awkward at some points but not bad at all. You’ve gotten me to listen to more down the road.
