Ivy Envy - Chicago Cubs Fan Podcast (UNOFFICIAL)

This episode starts with a little discussion about the first few games of the Cubs 2018 Spring Training.  Then we get into the leadoff hitter discussion.  Joe Maddon plans to "audition some dudes," and we share our thoughts on four leadoff candidates, Almora, Happ, Zobrist, and Schwarber.

Welcome to the first episode of our 10th season of podcasting on the Cubs.  The Cubs signed Yu Darvish!  The rotation suddenly looks great, and we talk about how good it is.  We also talk about how good the rest of the team is by looking at the ZiPS and PECOTA projections for the 2018 Chicago Cubs.

At the beginning of the season, we made some predictions for the 2017 season.  Most, if not all, of these stat predictions, were suggested by listeners.  Michael from Galesburg (The Awesome 80's Podcast & Cultivating Catuli) joins us to tell us how we fared.  One of the hosts will emerge victoriously.  

This episode wraps up our 9th season of podcasting on the Cubs.  Next week, we will preview Spring Training and go through the 2018 Cubs ZiPS projections.  Thanks for sticking with us through this incredibly slow off-season, and the next episode starts Season 10!
