A sweep of the Rival Cubs feels good. But what does it actually mean?
This week, Alex and Tara talk through the weekend series with the North Siders, and then debate whether or not the sudden success is based on things that are sustainable.
They also dive into the Jordan Hicks conundrum - He has to pitch to stay sharp, but there aren't many chances for saves these days. What's a manager to do?
And if you want a little Way Back Wednesday action, feel free to jump into the Tony La Russa conversation as Tara and Alex consider how HE would handle a modern bullpen.
Plus, Alex's Chirp of the Week is a callback to an earlier episode... with a twist.
