BN Podcast Episode 28: Garza’s Return, Price’s Injury, Castro’s Focus, and the Elephant in the Room

Chicago Cubs

bnpodcastimagesmallIt’s the 28th 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. This week’s set got us into the best/worst trades of the Jim Hendry era, Scott Feldman’s trade value, the merits of signing relievers to pre-arbitration (or arbitration) extensions, and the baselines for various advanced stats, among other things.

On this week’s episode, we talk about Matt Garza’s return, and the implications thereof. What exactly are we hoping for?

We also get into David Price’s triceps injury as it relates to future Cubs plans, Starlin Castro’s potential and focus, and the proper uses of a JumboTron at Wrigley Field.

And, yes, we do talk a little bit about the elephant in the room (i.e., my Carlos Marmol story screw-up last week), and I explain a little more about how it happened, and how I should have done things a lot differently.

Because we were off last week, and because there was so much to discuss, this week’s episode is of the super-sized variety.
