Baseball Is Dead Episode 187: Belli Signs With Cubs

Rewind 15 seconds
Fast Forward 15 seconds
Cody Bellinger inked a deal with the Cubs over the weekend in what seems like a win-win for both sides. We’re talking about how the Cubs flipped the narrative about their offseason from subpar to very solid. We also dive into how this might affect the rest of Scott Boras unsigned clients; mainly Montgomery and Snell. Eric Hosmer retired and Jayhay gives him a heartfelt sendoff for having a career. Jayhay also breaks down a Pirates hit piece and Dallas raises it for Mitch Keller. Also: Kodai Senga’s injury, Pablo Sandoval in shape, Mt. Rushmore of first basemen, storytime with Joe, baboon talk, and 2001 MVP hindsight. Thanks for listening and stay tuned for programming updates!
