Dan and John talk about the Cubs and Cardinals upcoming showdown next week at Wrigley as both their teams try to break the bonds of mediocrity so far this young season. Is a brawl imminent? They also discuss Pirates' manager Clint Hurdle's diss of John's favorite player, Javier Baez.
Dan and John analyze the first full week of the 2018 season with John still highly confident despite the less-than-stellar start the Cubs were hoping for and Dan seeing positive signs for the lower-expectation Cardinals. Both agree there are warning signs ahead for the Brewers. John's wife Kathy, a Brewers fan, makes a guest appearance.
Dan and John kick off another season of podcasting with reviews of spring training, analysis of first games for both teams and predictions for the season ahead. Let's just say the expectations are sky-high on the Chicago's northside and a bit more tempered under the Arch in St. Louis.
Dan and John begin a new season of podcasting and wonder right away whether anything has changed in the NL Central since the Cubs won the division in 2017. The Cards made an early splash acquiring Marcell Ozuna and the Cubs responded a few days ago with the signing of Yu Darvish. Can anyone dethrone the Cubs in 2018?
