We’re back with a look at the impending offseason and the just-finished managerial search.
Sahadev and I made some predictions before the season. We did not do well.
Is it Girardi or bust for the Cubs? How likely is that to result in a “bust”? Plus more emails than you can shake a stick at.
So much to talk about without ever really knowing what’s the right answer.
Mostly baseball, but, yeah, the other stuff is in there.
When your team isn’t very good, what is there to watch in September? Also: other stuff.
Was the David DeJesus trade indicative of some serious money troubles?
Where might we see which prospects when? Did that make sense?
Update coupled with a podcast episode? Could you ask for more? (Please don’t.)
Garza is gone, and Soriano is maybe almost gone. But Lake is here to stay, right!?!
It’s rumor season, and even the podcast is infected.
Minutes after breaking today’s big trade, Law was on the phone with us. That is technically a true statement.
A Friday night episode of the podcast? Sure, why not. So much to discuss!
Not good with the ladies? No worries. You might have better luck with scouts.
Last week’s Draft was huge, but do we really know how huge? Also, why do trades happen the way that they do?
Also: how much is Kevin Gregg worth in trade, really?
What exactly are we looking for from Matt Garza over the next couple months? What’s coming for Starlin Castro? And what’s up with David Price’s arm?
BN Podcast Episode 27: Baez K’s, Stewart Oddities, Rotational Crowding and a Kevin Gregg Retrospective
Kevin Gregg last closed for the Cubs in 2009. What did the Cubs’ world look like in 2009?
Is the record a fair reflection of the team, and where do they go from here?
The Wrigley renovation deal is done, the Cubs’ bullpen is in shambles, and Sahadev covers covering the beat.
