Cubs Weekly Podcast: A Giant series sweep
The Cubs swept the San Francisco Giants in a series with massive Wild Card implications. The Cubs Weekly Podcast, hosted by Andy Martínez and Tim Stebbins, recapped the series including big performances from Seiya Suzuki, Justin Steele and Jordan Wicks.
Martínez and Stebbins discussed the Cubs’ ability to rest some of their bullpen arms in the series, how David Ross is managing late-season fatigue and why it’s important to preserve some of those key relievers. They examined Adbert Alzolay’s absence and why a few days off now is beneficial.
Later in the podcast, the duo looked at September call-ups, including why they decided to call up Shane Greene and move on from him in a short amount of time. Then, the Cubs discuss one of the hot topics among Cubs’ fans, Alexander Canario and why he hasn’t seen too much playing time and what the Cubs hope he gains in his time up in the major leagues.
