Podcast: Ryne Sandberg on the resurgence of the Cubs

The Chicago Cubs are back. Since the All-Star break, the defending champs have shaken off that World Series hangover and taken control back in the NL Central.

This week on the podcast, we’re talking to a man who might be so happy you’d think he’s still part of the team. Well, he kind of is.

Cubs legend Ryne Sandberg — who is also an official team ambassador these days — is our guest. He’s talking about what’s behind the Cubs resurgence, offering his take on their trade-deadline additions and talking about his love for Chicago. That could be seen this week, as he worked with Subway to break ground on a renovation for a Chicago-area Little League field.

Elsewhere on the show this week, we’re talking about Pete Rose, an alternative world in which Donald Trump owned the Giants and we take an unexpected turn into soundtracks of ’90s sports movies.
