The Central Dispatch: 8-8-18

The Cubs blanked Kansas City (they are the worst team in major league baseball so it’s not a HUGE feat) and the Brewers were clobbered by the Padres. The Cubs now sit 2 and a half games above the Brewers and next Tuesday the two teams will meet in Chicago for their first series in over a month. The Cubs have to finish with the Royals and then the Nationals the rest of this week and the Brewers have San Diego and those Baby Braves. Who KNOWS what the standings will be by the time next Tuesday rolls around. The Twins have split with Cleveland so far this so they stay 9 games behind the tribe in second place. Also, Javy Baez for NL MVP. That is your Central Dispatch on Classic Rock 100.1
