WRSP Radio presents the fifth episode of the second year of Weekend Sports Huddle with co-hosts Tom Pollin, Hunter Hodies and producer Dave Holcomb.
Last week, both Pollin and Holcomb were opportunistic about the potential turnaround for both the Chicago Cubs and Pittsburgh Pirates. Each team answered the bell.
The Cubs and Pirates have both lost just once since our last show. Chicago hasimpressively won six of seven, but Pittsburgh is on an absolute tear, winning six straight including 12 of 14. At this point, will the Milwaukee Brewers be in third place by next Saturday?
On the south side of Chicago, the White Sox continue to purge their roster in an effort to collect top of the line prospects. They traded away Todd Frazier and David Robertson to the New York Yankees. Our hosts react to the deal and take a look at the current trade market.
In the NFL, the deadline for signing franchise tagged players to long-term deals has past, which means Steelers running back Le'Veon Bell will play the 2017 season on the franchise tag. It could also mean Bell doesn't report to training camp on time. Holcomb will explain why it's never a good idea to pick this fight with the Steelers.
If time permits, our hosts will also discuss the other big news of the week - Hugh Freeze resigning from Ole Miss and Kyrie Irving asking to be traded out of Cleveland.
