The Northside Show – August 07, 2020: Cubs vs. Cardinals Preview, Bullpen Talk, and Deep Counts

The Chicago Cubs currently sit at 10-3 with a healthy 3.5 game lead in the too-early-to-watch standings. Though they’re coming off a tough loss, things still look bright heading into a huge match-up against the archrival St. Louis Cardinals.

In today’s podcast, Austin and Benjamin talk Cubs/Cardinals, highlighting the pitching matchup of Jon Lester and Daniel Ponce de Leon, while also exploring the Cubs options in the bullpen. They further dive into the Cubs offensive approach at the plate, and how working deep counts will be a key to success as the 60-game sprint continues.
