Thanks for downloading the 474th episode of The Ivy Envy Podcast. The Cubs were just swept by the Pittsburgh Pirates and we break down this somewhat frustrating series. Corey made his first trip to Wrigley in the 2017 season and talks about some of the Wrigley renovations that happened over the off-season, mainly the addition of the plaza and the relocation of the bullpens.
Then we get into the games. The Cubs had plenty of opportunities to win the first two games of this series. This should feel very familiar to Cubs fans. Last year, before the All-Star break, the Cubs were scuffling. The offense wasn't producing and the bullpen had some glaring issues. Is the bullpen as unreliable as it feels right now? Or are they not being given much breathing room by the offense? We share our thoughts on the situation.
Andy previews the upcoming series with the Brewers, Kurt shares a scary stat, and we read some internet muscle flexes.
