Cubs Weekly Podcast: Youth Movement
The Cubs debuted plenty of rookies in 2023, including prospects like Jordan Wicks, Pete Crow-Armstrong and Daniel Palencia providing an interesting discussion: how does a team break young players into their roster while winning? Andy Martínez and Tim Stebbins discuss that on the latest edition of the Cubs Weekly Podcast. The pair analyze Crow-Armstrong’s debut and usage in his first few games at the big-league level.
Later in the podcast, Martínez and Stebbins discuss Christopher Morel’s importance and where he could fit defensively in 2024. They also discuss Julian Merryweather’s role next season and the importance of the Cubs’ bullpen.
The podcast wraps up with some postseason talk, including the NL Central’s struggles in the postseason of late and whether the playoff format is skewed against the top teams.
