Ivy Envy - Chicago Cubs Fan Podcast (UNOFFICIAL)

Thanks for downloading the first episode of our 11th season of podcasting on the Cubs.  All of the players have reported to Spring Training in Mesa, and we cover a lot in this episode. 

  • Kurt's Scary Stat looks closer at the PECOTA projections for Cubs starting pitchers.  
  • The Cubs tv deal is official, and as everyone expected, the broadcast partner is Sinclair. 
  • Addison Russell held his first press conference since being suspended for violating MLB's domestic violence policy.  We share our thoughts on his statements. 
  • Joe Maddon spoke with the media a few times.  He made some more comments on Russell, revealed the slogan for the 2019 Cubs, and talked about the offense and coaching strategy. 
  • Theo and Jed also addressed the media.  Theo talked about Russell, how the Cubs are handling domestic violence issues as an organization, and the Joe Ricketts emails.  
  • We take a look at the health of the club heading into Spring Training. 
  • The Cubs have a new bullpen pitcher in Xavier Cedeno, and we talk about what impact that could have on Tyler Chatwood.
