Dan and John continue to debate whether each team's relatively mediocre Aprils is a sign of anything to come. John says Cubs will get better and Dan says the Cardinals might surge past the Cubs in May.
Dan and John debate which team is more in danger of slippage. John sees the Cardinals with a weak lineup and Dan notes the Cubs' pitching already showing signs of substantial regression.
Dan and John spar in wake of Cubs solid start and Cardinals sputtering out of the gate. John even makes up a narrative so he can rub in that his team won the World Series last year. The hosts look ahead to interesting games for both teams over the Easter weekend.
Dan and John kick around highlights from the season opening showdown series in St. Louis where the Cubs lost the first game but came back to win the next two. Both hosts generally liked what they saw from their respective teams.
Although the 2016 is over, John reminds Dan of what happened last year and Dan responds with reminding John of the last 100 years. Nonetheless, all those things are meaningless as the 2017 season begins on national television in St. Louis as the Cubs take on the Cardinals.
