Len & Lin: Pearl Jam Rocks Wrigley; Cubs Rocked in Colorado [Listen]"Yesterday was kind of summed up by the homerun hit by Addison Russell; it was 10-nothing and he hit a homerun into a trashcan in left, and I think that was a metaphor for the day the Cubs had."
Len & Lin: KB Toys with MVP Prospects [Listen]"Somebody on the team bus last night got on Kris Bryant a little bit and said hey, if you knew what you were doing, you woulda hit a triple!"
Len & Lin: Cards Gain No Games on Division-Leading Cubs [Listen]"I didn't think my takeaway from the weekend would be a case of bullpen envy, but I was really impressed by the St. Louis Cardinals bullpen."
Len & Lin: Cubs Win Another Wild One [Listen]"Have you in your life ever seen a batter ask for a timeout, step out of the batter's box, realize the ump had not given him a timeout, as the pitcher is winding up, jump back into the batter's box and hit a 2-run line drive?"

Len & Lennartz: Meatloaf and Potato Chips [Listen]"You really don't want to overpay for a relief pitcher; remember a former administration trading a very young pitcher by the name of Jon Garland to the White Sox for Matt Karchner."
Len & Lennartz: Cubs Run Through Rangers to Begin Tough 2nd Half [Listen]"JD had probably the best start of his career his rookie year, striking out the first 8 Dodgers.

Len & Lee: The Second Half Starter [Listen]"It was nice to kinda get away and just be a normal member of society without having to travel all over the country and just kinda kick my feet up a little bit, spending as much time as possible at home.
