The Cubs biggest news of the week was settling arbitration numbers with about a quarter of the team. We're sorry, we wish it was more, too. We talk about how young players are wildly underpaid/baseball's broken pay systerm, then more baseball-y things like how every other NL contender has made moves to improve their teams, and the Cubs are - at ...…
 
Mark and Paul discuss the latest in the White Sox's pursuit of free-agent infielder Manny Machado (:30 mark), what happens to Tim Anderson if the Sox land Machado (4:30), how much the Sox improved this offseason (8:18), Adam Engel's playing time with the addition of Jon Jay (10:43) and the atmosphere heading into this weekend's Cubs Convention ...…

Before a (spoiler alert) sad Bears game, Adam and Kevin recorded this week's episode in Adam's Brooklyn apartment, where they talked about new Cubs bench coach Mark Loretta, Theo's weekend interview, the underrated Joe Maddon, and Doug Glanville hanging out with Oates, from Hall & Oates. Yeah, this offseason is boring so far. Let's light it up ...…
 
On this episode of the podcast: Kris Bryant is historically good. Theo made an appearance on 670 The Score to talk about the Cubs' offseason. The long-awaited tv deal is starting to (kind of) come into focus. Steamer projections are out, and we look at the projected NL Central standings. The Cubs have a bench coach, it's Mike Loretta. Harper/Ma ...…
 
Adam & Kevin are both back on the pod, live, for the first time in 3 weeks, and with very little Cubs news going on, this is all about Adam telling the story of going to Randy Rosario's house in the Dominican Republic. For real, that happened, it's nuts, and Randy is a great guy. This is a fun one! Follow us! Instagram & Twitter: @awaygamespod ...…
 
On this episode, you'll learn about long-time Cubs clubhouse manager, Yosh Kawano. Yosh worked for the Cubs for 73 years.
 
We'll be back with an all new episode NEXT Wednesday to kick off 2019, but for now... It's the day after Christmas, Kevin & Adam are hanging with friends and family and NOT each other, so we're releasing our first-ever episode from before the 2018 year even started. Kinda fun to take a look back at why we're doing this as we come to the end of ...…
 
The slow off-season continues for the Cubs. On this episode, we start things off by sharing some more thoughts on the Addison Russell situation and explain where we are as fans and podcasters of a team that continues to employ Addison Russell. We also go through a few recent Cubs acquisitions and talk about a division that seems to be improving ...…
 
Welcome to the Cubs, Daniel Descalso! Some people seem to be mad, but Kevin and guest co-host/brother Joe McCaffrey think it's fine as long as this offseason wasn't "The Descalso Offseason." Gordo says Kris is leaving in 3 years and somehow that's "news," and Cubs network news breaks during the podcast. We joked about Fox News carrying the game ...…
 
Mark and Paul are back to talk about all the happenings (or lack thereof) from the MLB winter meetings: Those Bryce Harper to the White Sox rumors (:22 mark), are the winter meetings still a thing that needs to happen (6:44), the state of the White Sox (9:24), the backlash from Harold Baines' Hall of Fame selection (11:55) as opposed to Lee Smi ...…

Thanks for downloading this episode of The Ivy Envy Podcast. We have a number of Cubs topics to discuss on this episode. In tragic news, former Cub Luis Valbuena was killed in Venezuela.

On this episode of the podcast, we talk about the moves the Cubs have made in the last few weeks, including tendering Addison Russell a contract.
 
Let's be fair, throughout history, the Cubs haven't had a lot of truly important walk-off home runs late in the season. On this episode, you will hear about the home run that catapulted the Cubs into the 1938 postseason and was worthy of a ticker-tape parade.
 
Guest time! Sara Sanchez of Bleed Cubbie Blue brings her big free agent spreadsheet with her to talk about Cubs offseason, mourn the loss of Jesse Chavez (for now), and talk about how she went from a mining town in Utah, writing about her brother's baseball games, to living 5 blocks from Wrigley and writing about the Cubs. Fun stuff! Follow her ...…
 
Kevin is out of town this week but Adam hopped on the phone with diehard Cleveland Indians fan/fellow NYC-based comedian Jason Kanter to discuss his Indians fandom (it's been a tough life) and his experience at games 6 and 7 of the 2016 World Series. Thanks to an insane hookup from an old buddy, Jason was sitting in the suite directly next to t ...…
 
We have a new studio, Red Sox won, and it sucks. Giving our awards predictions as well. Listen, won't you?

Kevin and Adam reluctantly discuss the fake Kris Bryant trade rumors perpetrated by ESPN / Buster Olney, the "budget" that we still cannot quite believe the Cubs are holding themselves to, the weird possible dismissal of pitching coach Jim Hickey, and we make our picks for MLB's postseason awards: MVPs, Cy Youngs, and Rookies of The Year. Hot s ...…
 
While the Chicago Cubs haven't made any huge off-season moves, there has been plenty to talk about. On this episode, we get caught up with the minor moves and major rumors.
 
Kevin and Adam did some research for this one! We dive deep into potential free agents and trades now that the Cubs offseason is (thankfully?) upon us. Harper? Machado? Schwarber trade? LUXURY TAX TIERS?! Firing Addison Russell into the sun? Sexy lefties?! Email us at awaygamespodcast@gmail.com with your offseason wish list and let's talk about ...…

Dan and John zero in on the Cardinals off-season.

Dan and John also talk about other moves the Cardinals should or might make.
 
The Cubs are way OFF but we are ON, even though there's almost zero Cubs news. We talk Girardi rumors, then get into a World Series preview, make our picks, and talk to a couple comedian friends who know these teams much better than we do: Boston native, hilarious comic, and Red Sox fan Joe List, and LA Dodgers fan and Adam's manager, Brett Car ...…
 
Chris and Robbie preview the 2018 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers. Chris also apologizes for throwing disrespect on the Red Sox name We also recap this past weekend's twitter fight.
 
Dan and John talk about the Cubs off-season in some depth. John believes it's almost certain the Cubs will set their sights on FA Bryce Harper and note that Theo Epstein almost always gets his man. In an increasingly competitive NL Central, that would certainly rearrange the balance of power more in the Cubs favor.…
 
This is our 587th episode and the first real episode of the off-season. On this episode, you will hear us discuss Chili Davis' dismissal and the hiring of Anthony Iopoce. We also discuss Shiraz Rehman's departure from the Cubs organization and share some rumors involving Jason McLeod and Brandon Hyde. This leads to a discussion on one area we f ...…
 
The first domino of the offseason has fallen, and that domino was named Chili. Davis is out as hitting coach, and old friend Anthony Iapoce is back. One big change is it seems like this hitting coach actually might know who's on the team - exciting! We talk about what that could mean for the offense, Chili's parting thoughts, Maddon's (mildly p ...…
 
The Cubs 2018 season is over, but Kevin and Adam get back on the mics to talk about what baseball they still are (or are not) watching, Theo Epstein's post-season press conference, the weirdness of this 95-win season, and briefly touch on some offseason things, before diving MUCH deeper into the offseason plans in the upcoming weeks. Time to re ...…

Mark and Paul recap the sudden end of the Cubs season: What Theo Epstein said about the lack of urgency (:42 mark), a closer look at what went wrong with the offense (10:38), predicting the roster for 2019 (16:04) and what any tension means between Joe Maddon and Epstein (24:13).
 
Dan and John talk about the shocking end of the 2018 season, especially for the Cubs, who led the division on Saturday and went home on Tuesday. The Cardinals also saw their playoff possibilities evaporate with a horrible final week. Already, the co-hosts are talking about moves each team needs to make for 2019.…
 
Vinnie from Bensonhurst calls the show! Chris, Paul, and Robbie breakdown and preview the ALDS/NLDS!
 
And so it ends...for now. Our final podcast of the Cubs 2018 season comes earlier than we'd like, and Kevin was there to "enjoy" it. Adam called Kevin to wake him up & talk about the wild card game, and really just our feelings on the end of a weird year. We also talk about some of the many GREAT things to come out last night: "Cubs or Nothing" ...…
 
Paul and Robbie break down the AL and NL Wild Card games
 
Look, we're gonna do a pod for every playoff game, and we don't want to stop now.

What does ANY of this ...…

Quintana vs. Chacin will decide the Central, and Kevin will be at Wrigley for the game. Oof, it's crunch time. Follow us! Instagram & Twitter: @awaygamespod Tumblr: awaygamespodcast.tumblr.com Hosts @adammamawala & @kevi ...…
 
It's going to take 163 games to determine the NL Central Champions, and on this episode, we talk about what got us to this point and what the Cubs need to do to win the division for the 3rd straight season.
 
We start our second season of this podcast with a topic that nearly all Cubs fans are familiar with, our hatred of the St. Louis Cardinals. Michael from Galesburg takes the reigns on this episode. He has had this topic in mind for an episode since we started the podcast. Michael has a special kind of hatred for the Cardinals, and he lays out al ...…
 
So, the Cubs are back to scoring zero or one run basically every other game. We crunched the numbers, and it turns out, that's bad. With a .5 game lead with 5 to go, and the Brewers on fire and closing against an awful Detroit team, the wild card -- for the first time in a long time -- seems almost likely. Ugh. Speaking of "ugh," and generally ...…
