We sat down with Karl Ravech to talk about the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals rivalry, the Kris Bryant injury and the legacy of Sammy Sosa.
Ahead of this weekend’s showdown between the Chicago Cubs and St. Louis Cardinals, I sat down with Karl Ravech of ESPN. We covered a pretty wide array of topics, ranging from the Cubs’ acquisition of Cole Hamels to Sammy Sosa‘s legacy in the game.
Can Hamels provide stability in a Cubs rotation that was supposed to be the club’s biggest asset this season? Who will succeed Mike Matheny at the helm of one of the most storied franchises in baseball? If Kris Bryant misses the rest of the year, what does it mean for Chicago?
Obviously, the Cubs head into Sunday’s finale looking to avoid a sweep. St. Louis outscored the Cubs 11-4 over the first two games of the series as the visitors’ starting pitching continues to struggle. Ahead of tonight’s action, though, let’s talk some Cubs and Cardinals.
