At this edition of the Cubs Corner, presented by Coach’s Bar and Grill, Anthony welcomed AL insider Robert Fiorante to the show to discuss the Cubs, White Sox, playoffs and MLB awards at the end of the season.

Anthony began the episode apologizing for the break and updated viewers on the exchanges that sent Joc pederson to the Braves, André Chafin to A, Ryan tepera and Craig kimbrel to the White Sox, Trevor Williams and Javier Baez at the Mets, Antoine Rizzo to the Yankees, Kris bryant to the giants and Jake Marisnick to the Padres.

Following the roster change update, Anthony and Bob described the Cubs’ seven-game winning streak – including superb play from Frank Schwindel and Ian happ. Additionally, the pair highlighted the success that Patrick Wisdom and Rafael Ortega have had since the trade deadline despite the Cubs sitting fourth in the NHL center and more than ten games below .500.



Despite the squad-wide struggles, Anthony and Bob pointed out that the Cubs have some nice pieces intact for a future Cubs team – including some of the insights gained by the trade deadline. Bob delved into the players the Cubs acquired from the White Sox at the deadline, Nick Madrigal and Cody Heuer.
