The Central Dispatch: 7-20-18

The Cubs beat the Cardinals last night, in come from behind fashion yet again, to extend their lead in the central to 3 games over the beer makers. More importantly, the Cubs also got in on the trade frenzy by adding Jesse Chavez to their pitching staff. What? Jesse Chavez isn’t a household name? Yea, I will be honest I had to look him up too…but the Cubs need pitching. The Brewers will open their second half against the Dodgers and their new teammate Manny Machado. Not a great draw to start the second half for a team that is notorious for a mid season slide. The Twins get the luxury of opening against the WORST team in baseball! So, bring on the ROYALS! That is the Central Dispatch on Classic Rock 100.1
