Ivy Envy - Chicago Cubs Fan Podcast (UNOFFICIAL)

On this episode of the podcast, we talk about some of the pitchers that the Cubs have acquired in the last week. The Cubs also move a few minor league players to the 40-man roster to avoid other teams picking them in the upcoming Rule 5 Draft.

We spend the rest of the episode answering listener questions. Some questions are Cubs related and some definitely are not.

Welcome to the 365th episode of The Ivy Envy Podcast. This week, the Cubs organization brought home three awards, the Rookie of the Year (Kris Bryant), Manager of the Year (Joe Maddon) and the Cy Young (Jake Arrieta). We talk about what these awards mean to the individual players and the organization. We also look at how these awards could help the Cubs attract their desired free agents.

The Cubs have a new radio home, 670AM The Score. Crane Kenney also shared the Cubs plans to have their own network when the current tv deal has expired.

We’ve received a lot of email about the Cubs options with free agents, specifically with starting pitchers. On this episode, we explore the different routes the Cubs could take to strengthen their starting pitching, from free agents to trades.

At the beginning of the season, we made our predictions for the Cubs 2015 season. Most of the stats we predicted seemed logical in April, but this 2015 season didn’t exactly go the way we thought it would.

Join us as we look back at all of the stats we predicted. We also answer a couple of listener questions.

Michael from Galesburg joins us on this episode. Check out his podcast, The Awesome 80’s Podcast.

After a one-week vacation, we return with our first off-season episode of The Ivy Envy Podcast.

Theo Epstein held a press conference one day after the Cubs season ended. We talk about the topics Theo covered in in the press conference.

Typically, in October and November, we spend a lot of time talking about the Cubs prospects participating in the Arizona Fall League. Obviously, we had much better things to talk about…the Cubs post-season run. We go over the Cubs prospects in the Arizona Fall League this season and talk about their production and development.

Since this is the first post-season episode, we share the important MLB post-season dates and discuss how those dates will impact the Cubs.
