Dan and John discuss the jarring role reversals of the Cubs and Cardinals so far in 2016: Cubs are pitching best in MLB and Cards are hitting the best. It was supposed to be the other way around. The hosts also discuss the amazing start of Aledmys Diaz and the groundless speculation of Jake Arrieta and PEDs.
Dan and John discuss the first head-to-head meeting of the Cubs and Cards in 2016. There was lots of hype in the air in St. Louis, a ton of good pitching, and some shoddy reporting by a New York newspaper and others.
John attends the Cubs home opener this week and understandably likes what he sees of his team's best start in decades. Dan raves about Cardinals surprise rookie Jeremy Hazelbaker, who he compares to a former Cardinal from the 1980s.
Dan and John discuss the train wreck of the Cardinals first three games and the Cubs fast start. A Cardinals' icon urges Cards' fans to relax and while John tries to goad Dan into panic mode but he's not biting. Some of the listener feedback, however, certainly is biting.
