Listen: Jay Hood, Astros, Baseball discussed on Under The Hood
"Hood with Jonathan weeknights on ESPN one thousand and the ESPN app. Okay. A little more baseball talk hood. He's got the night off in smeller and Hubner. We always liked talking baseball. When we get together. We're gonna talk some football with Kevin fish pain a little bit later right around nine thirty. So we can follow through with some of our baseball talk on the other side of the top of the let's play the only now BUSTER only I talking about what the cubs clubhouse is lacking going forward. Look, I think basically what they're looking for generally. And this is not necessarily on a given team. I don't think it has to be tied to one particular player, but it has to it can sometimes be tied to like an spree decor. Where that team shows up on a given day that just wants to rip your guts out. Okay.

And maybe just after two thousand sixteen the front office doesn't feel like the same hunger. Is there that was in two thousand fifteen two thousand sixteen we'll talk more about that. We heard so much after the sixteen season about the hangover year the next year. The Astros won the Astros came out and said, they weren't going to have a hangover. And then they went out in the play in the postseason this year and one of the biggest offseason prizes, Freddie. I wanna ask you is leaving breadcrumbs as to where he's actually gonna sign. Okay. Socities Chicago continuing our baseball conversation. You want to jump in three one two three three two three seven seven six more bears in the bottom of the hour nine thirty seven fish brain. It's Mellon Hubner right here in for Jay hood under the hood on ESPN one thousand Dan owed an unbelievable amount of money to the IRS. I got behind him my taxes. It's a horrible feeling. He was in denial when I get this letters from higher s you wanted to act like they didn't exist. Finally, Dan,."
