With 10 games left, the Cubs sit 2.5 games ahead of the Brewers in the NL Central.  On this episode, you'll hear us share our confidence with the bullpen as it stands, and the individual relief pitchers we feel are the most confident.  

We also talk about how the offense can bail out the bullpen by not putting them in tight spots, and there are some signs that can come together before the playoffs.

The Cubs had the opportunity to, if not lock up the division, create some real space between them and the Brewers this week.  That did not happen.

This Cubs/Brewers series at Wrigley will probably feel like playoff baseball.  The Cubs end (kind of) a miserable series in Washington DC and return to Wrigley for a 3-game set with the Brewers before they head back to DC for one game...and then back to Wrigley for a series with the Reds.

On this episode, we share some general thoughts on the last week in Cubs baseball and talk about this weird week coming up.
