Greg and Josh discuss the latest string of good play and what it suggests fans should look for going forward. They also break down the epic Vladimir Guerrero Jr. vs Aroldis Chapman showdown and the “it factor” that players like Vlad possess, Bo Bichette continuing to break record, Freddy Galvis being waived and how that impacts the roster going forward, the Justin Smoak/Rowdy Tellez playing time mess, Ken Giles‘ “health” and the struggles of the front office to get a popular message across. Finally, they answer listener questions.
