Sam Panayotovich (WGN Radio), Chris Emma (670 The Score), Danny Ecker (Crain’s Chicago) join Kap on the panel. Double good news for the Cubs—they beat the Blue Jays and Jon Lester’s injury will only keep him out 1-2 starts.
Plus, should the Cubs now think about extending Jake Arrieta? And is Javy Baez the most exciting athlete in Chicago?
Plus which is more likely to happen—Mike Glennon plays great against the Cardinals or Mitch Trubisky is terrible?
Listen to the full epidsode here:
There may be a sleeper cell Cubs fan working the fireworks at Busch Stadium.
Kris Bryant homered in the second inning of the Cubs-Cardinals game on Monday and surprisingly fireworks went off in St. Louis. Bryant made it 5-0 and he was almost at second base when the bang of a set of fireworks was audible on the CSN broadcast.
"And somebody set off some fireworks," play-by-play announcer Len Kasper said.
Jim Deshaies also chimed in on the broadcast with a crack about a Cubs spy.
"There's a mole." Deshaies said. "There's a Cubs spy in the fireworks department here."
A Cubs win eliminates the Cardinals from contention in the NL Central so this is just insult to injury.
Addison Russell went from shortstop to waiter on Monday night.
During the second inning of the series opener between the Cubs and Cardinals, Russell went headfirst into the stands to attempt a Jeter-esque catch, but wound up only with a chip on his shoulder.
It was such an amazing sequence that you have to see the frame-by-frame version:
In a classy move, Russell then delivered a brand new plate of nachos to the fan:
Hope that fan tipped 20 percent.
