"A Podcast To Be Named Later"

Tuesday July 5th, 2016 - 10pm EST
w/ Host Chris Mitchell @CJMitch73

As we get closer to the Mid-Summer classic the Cubs and ace Jake Arrieta are struggling at least slightly, injuries are starting to have an impact on teams potential to contend and the trade deadline is the elephant in the room. Today on "A Podcast To Be Named Later" we will look at the biggest surprises of the 2016 season and plant our flag on who should and should not be All Stars. We will play "Buy or Sell" as we look ahead to the second half and in our "Players in Focus" segment we will examine Adam Duvall, Kris Bryant, and Trevor Story. In our "News and Notes" segment we will look at Jake Arrieta's struggles and Clayton Kershaw's injury. You can also find a link to this Podcast at MinorLeagueBall . com
