Cubs Weekly Podcast: Major momentum
The Cubs are red-hot, having won 10 of 12 and 4 straight series. They’ve knocked the Pirates from 1st place all the way to 4th and are threatening to climb to the top of the NL Central…if not for the apparently unstoppable Cincinnati Reds.
Sean Marshall joins the podcast to break down the Cubs’ recent run with Andy Martínez and Tony Andracki. From the major turnaround by the offense to the steadying presence of the rotation, the Cubs are firing on all cylinders right now.
Marshall also breaks down the importance of the pitcher-catcher dynamic and why we’re seeing so much success from Marcus Stroman and Tucker Barnhart. With the Cubs heading to London, Marshall explains how the players should approach the grueling travel of the trip to keep the momentum going.
Plus, we discuss Trey Mancini’s role on the team, Mike Tauchman’s stellar play, Christopher Morel’s adjustments in the DH spot, Kyle Hendricks in prime “Professor” form and Nick Madrigal’s recent resurgence.
