The biggest news in Cubs-land this week is the promotion of prospect, Albert Almora. On this episode of The Ivy Envy Podcast, we talk about Almora’s impact on the team and the Soler injury that led to his promotion. We also talk about reasonable expectations for Almora and why some Cubs fans have unrealistic expectations on different prospects.
We briefly talk about the Cubs series win over the Phillies, mainly focusing on pitching.
We have several listener questions to answer, from the serious to the silly. Corey shares some scary stats and throws in a rare mid-week internet muscle flex.
