  • This is Not a Rebuild, Season 2, Episode 5: ... It's a Pennant Race

    Matt Trueblood

    The Cubs are hot, the weather is cooling, and This is Not a Rebuild now sounds like a much less ludicrous statement than it did a year ago. In fact, it's sort of an understatement.

    With the Cubs having turned a corner and become contenders for more than just a Wild Card berth and quick exit, the gang is a little giddy. Discussion topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Jordan Wicks's excellent season, thrilling first few starts in MLB, and place in a potential playoff rotation
    • The remaking of the Cubs lineup into one about as fearsome as those of Atlanta or the Dodgers
    • Justin Steele's extraordinary transformation
    • How very, very wrong three of the four of us were about Nick Madrigal
    • What the team is doing with the end of its roster during the expanded roster phase of the season, and whether it makes sense

    Then, stick around at the end, as we feature the first two special guests in TINAR history: Sorkin and Lincoln Trueblood. We're tri-generational now, baby.
