Ivy Envy - Chicago Cubs Fan Podcast (UNOFFICIAL)

Thanks for downloading the 463rd episode of The Ivy Envy Podcast.  This is what you will hear in this episode:

  • The Cubs traded prospect Donnie Dewees to the Royals for pitcher Alec Mills.  We look at the reason the Cubs traded Dewees and how Mills addresses a weakness in this organization.
  • We discuss the new extra innings rule that will be implemented in a few lower levels of baseball.  Every half-inning past the 9th inning will start with a runner on 2nd base.  We share our thoughts on this change.  
  • We look at a few Spring Training storylines that interest us. 
    • Kurt is interested to see who will be Jon Lester's catcher and talks about the catcher situation as a whole.
    • Andy talks about Joe Maddon's options with the lead-off spot. 
    • Corey will be paying attention to Albert Almora.

We wrap up the episode with some internet muscle flexes.
