The winter meetings are coming and who better to talk to about them than somebody who will fly to San Diego to stand in a lobby, The Athletic's Cubs writer Patrick Mooney. Patrick tells all about the Cubs vaunted pitch lab (or at least a sign that points to it), whether or not the Cubs really tried to sign Jose Abreu, which of the big shortstops th…
 
On this episode of the pod we have our favorite guest of all-time. You'll want to check it out as he is less than thrilled by possible Ian Happ contract extension talks, gives you an update on the Cubs quest for a new shortstop, how will they live without the stars they've non-tendered and how the possibility of adding Cody Bellinger feels like a s…
 
The guys took extra time to grade film and crunch the numbers to figure out how the Bears lost to the Lions and if they did it on purpose. It's not like Cairo Santos is going to ever miss an extra point unless he tries to. And Justin Fields played an amazing game, so how could he possibly have thrown a pick six unless it was his plan all along. The…
 
On a very special edition of the podcast, Mike Pusateri, David Brown and Andy interview actor and author Michael Kostroff. Even if you don't know you know him, you do. He played the lawyer Maury Levy on "The Wire" and has appeared in "Billions," "The West Wing," "Damages," "Show Me A Hero," "The Deuce," "The Plot Against America," Molly's Game" and…
 
The Bears are moving up the dial, the Cubs are poised to attempt some "intelligent spending," the Cubs annual ode to sweatpants is returning and Jon Greenberg of The Athletic drops by to talk about all of it and more. They talk about if the suddenly entertaining (but still bad) Bears will earn a promotion out of any of their noon Sunday kickoffs or…
 
David Brown is back to talk about the World Series (it's a lot easier to preview things after they happen), Dusty Baker's awkward celebrity friendship, and to look ahead at baseball's hot stove. The guys talk about Scott Boras' annual pun fest at the GM meetings, the concept of being "baseball funny", and what does "intelligent spending actually me…
 
It was a perfect day for the rebuilding Bears against the Dolphins. Justin Fields continues to look like a star, they scored a ton of points, they lost and we got to boo the refs. The guys break it down, try to decide which Fields play was more awesome than the last, tout Cole Kmet's Hall of Fame candidacy and try to figure out what the hell are th…
 
The history between the Bears and Dolphins isn't all that long and isn't all that storied, in fact, you probably only remember one game with any kind of clarity. But the guys dive in and dig up all kinds of info on the Bears connections of the Dolphins first-ever head coach, who won their last playoff game, and if any of the '72 Dolphins are still …
 
Usually the guys breakdown the previous week's game and then look ahead to the Bears' next opponent, but this week they not only do that, but they talk about the Roquan Smith to the Ravens and the Bears subsequent trade for Chase Claypool. They talk about how Roquan serving as his own agent contributed to this as well as Ryan Poles realizing there …
 
The Bears and Cowboys haven't played as many times as you would think over the years, but there have been some memorable games. The most vivid is the Bears' 44-0 domination in 1985, and the two playoff losses. Maybe less memorable are the lone wins for Gina Carano's dad and Tom Brady's old Michigan platoon-mate on Thanksgivings many years apart. Bu…
 
The guys are still buzzing about the pantsing the Bears put on the once proud Patriots on Monday night. The sheer amount of competence was startling. An offensive scheme that fit the players, another touchdownless second half by the defense and a successfully returned punt! They talk about the Bears taking advantage of an 11-game break after the mi…
 
The long, illustrious list of teams the Bears have beaten in the Super Bowl begins and ends with the mighty New England Patriots. But there's so much more to know about them. For instance, why did Matt Millen punch out their general manager on the field after a playoff game? How did the Sullivan family go bankrupt just a year after Super Bowl XX? T…
 
Lodged in between a game against the Commanders last week and a Patriots game that's not until Monday the guys do the obvious thing and talk about Strother Martin for a while on the Bears podcast. The look back at the mind-numbing loss to Washington and at how hard the Bears had to work to not accidentally win the game. They take opposite sides on …
 
The Washington NFL franchise has been in existence nearly as long as the Bears but they've won more Super Bowls (though fewer total championships) and been much more racist. Their first owner was forced to integrate his team or be denied access to his new stadium, and they had a coach who likely was only pretending to be Native American (no, not Jo…
 
The Bears rallied to make Sunday's loss to the Vikings fun and if Ihmir Smith-Marsette didn't do a reverse Marion Barber III they might have actually won. The guys discuss the Bears sudden more aggressive approach and if it will endure, how well Justin Fields played, and they rank Darnell Mooney's one handed catch among the many, many great catches…
 
The first round of the 2022 playoffs is in the books and the home team lost three of the four "series." The second round is upon us and Andy and David take a look at what happened in the best two of threes over the weekend and ahead to three underwhelming divison rematches plus Guardians-Yankees. Is Oliver Marmol still standing motionless in the Ca…
 
The baseball playoffs start on Friday, and apparently the Cubs aren't in them, but there's still fun stuff to talk about. The guys have some fun with the top 20 home run seasons in the history of both leagues. They ponder how many teams that actually tried to make the playoffs this year didn't. (It's not many.) They look at the playoff brackets and…
 
The Bears went to New Jersey and muddled around for a few hours and came home no longer tied for first place in the NFC North. Was this a blow to their Super Bowl hopes? The guys discuss that, and how you can fall for the same play over and over and over. Did Justin Fields play better or did everybody else just play worse? Why did the Giants have a…
 
It's hard to express just how hyped the season opener for the Bears was in 1987. It was on Monday Night Football, it was against the defending Super Bowl Champion Giants, both teams had been 14-2 in the 1986, they had met in the 1985 NFC Championship Game and the Bears dominated them...and, Mike Tomczak was playing QB for the Bears! OK, maybe that …
 
The first place, 2-1 Bears are doing it the old fashioned way with an opportunistic defense, a rugged running game and a passing game that looks like came straight out of the 1920s. Is it too early to give up on Justin Fields? Yes. Is it too early to worry about him? Maybe? The guys discuss what's wrong with the passing game, why the Bears are runn…
 
David Brown is back to talk baseball and the guys talk about whether anyone can have a good enough season to be more valuable than Shohei Ohtani. They talk about Aaron Judge's run at the American League triple crown (and he homers right in the middle of the podcast) and about whether Paul Goldschmidt has a chance to get a triple crown in the NL. Th…
 
For some reason the NFL insists on foisting the Bears and Packers in Lambeau at night, on national TV on us. They should know better. The Bears were overmatched, again, and while they kept the score superficially close, the outcome was really never in doubt. The Bears ran the ball well at the beginning and near the end, but did nothing in between. …
 
It is probably the most infuriating season in Cubs history (and that's saying something with this bunch). The Cubs patched almost all of their holes from the year before when they gagged away a pennant, and the fans were manic from the first game on. Greggie came home, the Cubs stole Derrek Lee, added Todd Walker for some reason and traded for the …
 
Was the Bears win over the Niners a sign that they're better than people thought, or just that they're good mudders? What were the good signs to take away from game one and the bad ones that invariably get washed away in the glow of victory? Did the Bears really have the advantage in the rain, or is it a good sign that a 49ers team built to dominat…
 
The Bears had put the NFL on notice with a big win over the (then) Redskins a couple of weeks prior, but they had a big score to settle when they went to San Francisco in week six in a rematch of the 1984 NFC Championship game. The Bears punched the Niners in the face early and often, Jim McMahon made some great throws (and one absolutely horrible …
 
The Bears podcast is back and so is Mike Pusateri for his third season. They take a look at the roster and try to figure out who the hell these guys are. What are reasonable expectations for the Bears with a first year head coach, a second year quarterback and the greatest kicker in football history? If the Bears improved their secondary so much wh…
 
The Cubs had two Hall of Famers on their pitching staff, they literally got to write in any salary they wanted to pay another Hall of Famer to join their outfield, and they won 75 games. The year was 1987, Wrigley Field's last without lights, Harry Caray had suffered a stroke and a raft of "celebrities" filled in for the first couple of months on t…
 
David Brown is back from vacation (and he wasn't robbed) and the guys take the bold stance that darnit, the Cubs SHOULD find a way to trade for Shohei Ohtani. They really went out there on a limb for that one. The talk about how much a team will have to give up to get Shohei and how much they'll have to pay him. They also discuss how long it would …
 
The Dusty Baker era ended with a big wet thud as a promising start ended abruptly when Rafael Furcal careened into Derrek Lee and broke his wrist. Mark Prior pitched his final games for the Cubs. Kerry Wood's career as a starting pitcher ended. Phil Nevin traded himself. Greg Maddux got Scott Boras to trade him. Michael Barrett punched AJ Pierzynsk…
 
Longtime baseball beat writer Mark Gonzales stops by the podcast to talk about the Cubs (and a little White Sox--mostly so Andy can make fun of Eloy trying to catch a flyball). They discuss the Franmil Reyes era, what the Cubs should do with shortstop next season, why they didn't trade Willson Contreras or Ian Happ and if they'll trade Happ this of…
 
The 1993 Cubs did something rare at the time, they had a winning record. Even more rare for the Cubs they had a winning record and didn't make the playoffs. Oh, and they rewarded their manager by firing him. Probably because they were tired of trying to remember how to spell Lefebvre. They let Greag Maddux go and acted like it was a genius move to …
 
The Cubs are headed to the Field of Dreams Game and Frank Schwindel will not be going with. Unless he can hurry up and drive some nails into his car tires again. Frank's been replaced on the roster by the very large Franmil Reyes, and David Brown has high hopes for Franmil. The guys discuss a lot of interesting things like what Cubs player is stran…
 
Before the Cubs and Reds can ruin your memory of the film, we give Field of Dreams the full Movie Deep Dive treatment. We settle the really important questions like, "How much money would plowing under farmland to build a baseball field cost a farmer in 1988?" or "Is it have a catch or play catch?" How did they convince Kevin Costner to make a seco…
 
The Cubs followed up a division title in 1989 by hosting the worst Home Run Derby of all time, and a rain delayed, mostly boring All-Star Game. Ryne Sandberg and Andre Dawson had good years, Mark Grace was pretty good and that was about it. They didn't sign any free agents, the only veteran they added was Dave Clark and amazingly just running back …
 
As David Brown and I wrapped up our discussion of this year's trade deadline and the winners and losers (mostly the Cubs), we found out that Vin Scully died. So the podcast actually starts with a few minutes of us remembering Vin, including his great open to game one of the the 1989 NLCS. Then we get to the deadline talk and try to figure out just …
 
The Cubs had a new manager, a new (very old) closer, a new GM who used to be an old manager, six All-Stars and they could play home games after sunset for once! It's time to Remember This Crap about the 1988 Cubs. Greg Maddux was great for a half, Mark Grace debuted in an unfamiliar number and should have been the Rookie of the Year, Andre Dawson f…
 
All-Star "week" (it's only three days) was chock-full o' stuff with the draft, the Home Run Derby and the weird uniforms in the actual game. David Brown is here to talk about all of that, potential trades, another new idea for the Derby which somehow results in Tom Cruise delivering the balls to an aircraft carrier and much more. They give their th…
 
There is no wheel spinning in this edition of Remember This Crap because the guys decide to bring in a guest with a love of '80s baseball and, inexplicably, the podcast. NBA writer Kelly Dwyer joins the fray as they discuss the 1985 Cubs who were riding high in early June only to ruin the season and the basketball camp experiences of Andy and Mike …
 
Bally Sports National MLB writer David Brown is back on the show and the guys talk about the Cubs recent resurgence and why Yan Gomes is ever allowed to designated hit. Seiya's back and Andy has big plans for him but he's going to need his pal Rob Manfred to use his powers to make it happen. Pete Crow-Armstrong is in the Futures Game which everybod…
 
It was a season so bad that the manager made up an excuse to go to Florida to take care of his mother to get out of it early. The last vestiges of the 2008 Cubs were either leaving after or during the season. Opening Day was a bad omen for the rest of the season and a Barves rookie had a big day and has been stealing money from the Cubs ever since.…
 
You asked and we answered. The baseball podcast this week is Cubs intensive, as Andy and Mike Praznowski take this awful team out to the woodshed. You'll hear scintillating answers to questions like: Why is Jason Heyward still on the team? Do they not realize they have nobody to replace Willson Contreras when they trade him? Would Willson even want…
 
Sandwiched in between the 88 win near-miss 2001 Cubs and the 88 win heartbreaking 2003 Cubs were the gawdawful 2002 Cubs. They got a manager fired, which got Ron Santo's number unofficially unretired before it could be retired. Moises Alou showed up and immediately got hurt. Fred McGriff was still around putting up completely hollow stats. They tra…
 
The Movie Deep Dive Podcast with actor/comedian Mike Pusateri returns with the long promised, much anticipated Young Frankenstein episode. It's one of the funniest movies ever made and toes the line between smart and stupid better than almost any other film ever has. Gene Wilder said it was his favorite movie and Mel Brooks said it's his best. So k…
 
The other 15 percent take center stage as the wheel of crap lands on 1983. Lee Elia stood up for his team said a lot of really profane but accurate things and ended up getting fired a few months later, Leon Durham was the only All-Star on the club, Chuck Rainey almost threw a no-hitter, Fergie forgot how to throw the ball to first base, the Cubs pl…
 
Bally Sports' David Brown is back from field trips to St. Louis and Washington and he has important food-related things to report. The guys talk about a fantasy football league that doesn't seem like that fun to be in and and they take a look at every team and with well more than 100 games left to go just how many still have realistic playoff chanc…
 
The Athletic's Jon Greenberg swings by to talk about Marquee's fiasco with The Reporters and the guys talk about all of the other things Marquee needs to do to fix things, including giving Cole Wright hazard pay for doing an hour pre and postgame for all of these awful Cubs games. How's Jed Hoyer's don't-call-it-a-rebuild going? When is Jason Benet…
 
The Cubs are ready to unveil the Fergie Jenkins statue, and the guys get so distracted by the fact the new "statue row" has two empty podiums that they spend the hour trying to figure out which players the Cubs are going to immortalize next. They're pretty sure the next one is guaranteed to be Ryne Sandberg, but then who gets the other spot? Many p…
 
The baseball podcast with David Brown is back and this week the guys discuss important baseball topics like why does Rick Sutcliffe think the Cubs are good enough to add players? Should the Cubs trade Willson Contreras? Why is it so much better when the Cubs bring up guys like Brandon Hughes and Christopher Morel instead of 30 year old non-prospect…
 
Some platforms had technical difficulties with the original post of this podcast. So here it is again. Not everyone had problems with the original, so that one also remains posted. The Cubs went back to the playoffs for a second straight year, and won just as many postseason games as they did the year before. But this was a 97 win team with a Japan…
 
The Cubs went back to the playoffs for a second straight year, and won just as many postseason games as they did the year before. But this was a 97 win team with a Japanese star in right field, a Cardinals retread in center, and a rookie of the year catcher. It was the 2008 Cubs and until their Canadian prop comic game one playoff starter walked se…
