Chicago Cubs

Sox Pod Thumb

The White Sox have let José Abreu search the free-agent waters for a new team. Which lucky new team will he sign with? The Angels acquired Hunter Renfroe from the Brewers. Could the White Sox have similar success with Kolten Wong? And, FanGraphs released a ZiPS projection for the 2023 MLB Season and they have the White Sox winning…76 games. How much of a disaster would that be in the White Sox self-proclaimed “five to seven-year window”? Join Herb Lawrence and Sean Anderson for the answers to those questions on the CHGO White Sox Live Show.

The Cubs’ future in center field looks bright, especially after their center fielder of the future took home an impressive piece of hardware Tuesday. Minor League Baseball and Rawlings announced their 2022 Gold Glove winners, selecting just nine players — one for each defensive position — out of all the teams in the 11 full-season minor leagues. And arguably the most exciting player in the Cubs’ system — and essentially the club’s consensus top prospect — in Pete Crow-Armstrong took the crown. https://twitter.com/Cubs/status/1595127867280850945 It’s just another reminder of how much Crow-Armstrong exploded onto the scene this season. Of course, the offensive success (175 wRC+ in 183 plate appearances with Low-A Myrtle Beach, 126 wRC+ in 288 plate appearances with High-A…

We’re now almost a dozen days into the signing period of free agency and….crickets. Will a deal get done for Cubs fans to be extra thankful about on Thursday? Luke, Cody and Ryan go over the latest whispers and the most recent non-tender surprises. It’s the end of the road for former top prospect Brailyn Marquez. Plus, who’s up for a trip to Wrigley’s Winterland?! YouTube Replay Show https://youtu.be/jtQ8KJJUO0c Subscribe to the Show Follow The Hosts

With the way the Cubs tore down their roster and mostly steered clear of long-term, big-money contracts over the last few years, it’s no surprise some fans remain skeptical that the front office will actually go out and pony up the type of deal necessary to reel in a free-agent shortstop this winter. President of baseball operations Jed Hoyer isn’t one to show his hand, but the prevailing wisdom is that the Cubs aren’t keen on giving out contracts that cover years approaching double digits, especially for position players who have either reached or are nearing 30 years old. It all ties back to Hoyer’s message about “intelligent spending” (i.e. spending in a way that won’t sacrifice future financial flexibility).…

After a historic 5 week run Justin Fields is obviously the best player on the Bears. Roquan Smith and Kahlil Mack are gone. So, who’s the 2nd best guy on the team? Is it too soon to jump on the Cole Kmet bandwagon? We’re talking Chicago sports and things MIGHT go off the rails before it’s over.
