Dan and John talk about the Cubs sweep of Miami this week and the Cardinals' Yelich problem. The upshot is that the NL Central race is tightening up, with all except the Reds within shouting distance of first place.
Dan and John talk about the big news of the week -- the Cardinals improbable 4-game sweep of the 8-2 Dodgers, who looked going in to be the best team in baseball.
