Some interleague play is on tap for the Cubs in Houston this weekend, and for once, Lin Brehmer is all for the designated hitter. Guess that’s what happens when your team is knocking the cover off the ball and it’s difficult to find spots for all the wallop in the lineup. The Astros are battling for a wildcard spot, so it’s going to be an intense series. Joe Maddon isn’t concerned yet with aligning his pitching rotation for the playoffs, which goes to show you that his focus is always on what’s right in front of him. Cubs fans know that a division championship is right in front of them, with the magic number being down to eight games going into the weekend. It’s going to make for an exciting autumn.
Len Kasper joins Lin Brehmer on the XRT Morning Show at 8:30am Mondays & Fridays as this historic Cubs season reaches the home stretch. Len & Lin: never letting the pressure exceed the pleasure, on 93XRT.
