This week we navigated a new ocean here on the site. It’s the introduction of VFTB Radio, designed to be a weekly podcast discussing the team.  The topics discussed by Brandon, Jeremiah and me in the inaugural edition were:

1. Carlos Marmol’s recent struggles- how should the Cubs handle this?  Will he return to form by the end of the season?

2. Did Mike Quade handle Marmol properly on Friday and Saturday?

3. Dave Bush Signing- Is it a good idea for the Cubs to take a chance on guys like Davis, Lopez, Ortiz & Bush?

4. Chris Carpenter Sent Back to AAA, Ortiz Stays in the Pen

5. Reaction to Ken Rosenthal’s Cubs trade deadline update (Link) & other pre-deadline thoughts

Enjoy and be sure to let us know your thoughts.
