The 2016Chicago Cubs
broadcast schedule was released, and while there are no big changes it looks to be a little more exciting than last season. One of the biggest changes will be the Cubs move to WSCR The Score 670 from WBBM 780. There wasn’t much focus on the games pre and post game coverage, but that should all change on the Score. The Cubs will find themselves televised mush of the season, including 7 games in total nationally.
ESPN’s Buster Olney recently reported on the discussion that owner will look into teams “tanking” for better draft picks. The Astros and Cubs are both two teams that have been cited as using tactics that didn’t put the best team on the field. I call it rebuilding, they call it tanking. But the one thing to remember is this system was put in place my MLB to keep teams competitive. It worked for Houston and the Cubs, now it’s called tanking? C’mon MLB, let’s figure out what we’re doing, ok?
2016 should be a super year, not just for the Cubs, but baseball in general.
