Away Games | A Chicago Cubs Podcast
by Kevin McCaffrey & Adam Mamawala
3w ago
Since 2018, our podcast has been previewing Chicago Cubs seasons, making a ton of predictions, doing a bunch of roster and league analysis, and having a lot of fun doing it. And in 2024, we’re doing that for the last time. Away Games Podcast is coming to an end after next week’s episode (which will be a look back), but we wanted to go deep one more time on the upcoming Cubs season. Ken Schultz (OutSports) joins us again to break down our Cubs for the upcoming year, and even leaves us with 32 great reasons to be excited about this team in 2024. Kevin, Adam and Ken talk breakouts, bold predictio ..read more

Welcome Back Cody Bellinger, Welcome Back Spring Baseball
Away Games | A Chicago Cubs Podcast
by Kevin McCaffrey & Adam Mamawala

And with the return of Cody Bellinger, the season can finally begin! The Cubs finally found a solution for the Cody Bellinger-sized hole in their lineup, and he returns on the Jed Hoyer Special contract (short term, opt outs galore). We talk about that, the Cubs plethora of non-roster invites, PECOTA projections that have the Cubs right around .500, and feelings about the team coming together as Spring baseball begins.

Away Games | A Chicago Cubs Podcast
by Kevin McCaffrey & Adam Mamawala
3M ago
It’s a BIG episode! So big, we have guest Ken Schultz (OutSports) on to help talk us through it. Shota Imanaga joins the Cubs rotation from Japan, the Cubs dealt two prospects for one top-50 prospect in baseball (1B/DH Michael Busch) and a MLB reliever (Yency Almonte). We analyze the moves the Cubs have made, talk about the big ones they haven’t, what Jed Hoyer has said about all of it, and Ken tells us about all the fun of the Cubs Convention: the new Cubs Hall of Famers, player panels, and an impressive showing by Craig Counsell.  This is our biggest, deepest Cubs talk in a while, so si ..read more

2023: Chicago Cubs Season Review
Away Games | A Chicago Cubs Podcast
by Kevin McCaffrey & Adam Mamawala
4M ago
Steele became an ace, we got the Tauch Off & Morel’s walk off grand slam that made him literally lose his shirt. The Ross Era also wrapped up in a weird way, as the team was both better and worse than we thought they could be at different times, leading to a result that was…literally exactly what we predicted in our annual season preview. We take this episode to check in on our pre-season predictions, hold ourselves accountable, look at highlights and lowlights and take stock of what, undeniably, was one year of Cubs baseball.

World Series Recap: The Rangers Finally Get It Done
Away Games | A Chicago Cubs Podcast
by Kevin McCaffrey & Adam Mamawala
6M ago
From one strike away to all the way there, the Rangers finally got rid of the the title of “oldest team to never win a World Series.” Game 1 was an all-timer, with Corey Seager’s 9th inning, game tying homer that reminded us of Kirk Gibson ’88, and Adolis Garcia’s extra inning walk off. And then…there were also other games. We recap the series, give D’backs fans their due, talk about the greatness of Bochy, and how the Rangers could provide the blueprint for what the Cubs should (and could) be as soon as next year.  Follow us at @awaygamespod on all the things and follow @adammamawal ..read more

Dusty, Baked: Rangers Await their World Series Opponent
Away Games | A Chicago Cubs Podcast
by Kevin McCaffrey & Adam Mamawala
6M ago
The Astros have been dispatched in what their fans surely think is a grand, unfair conspiracy that goes all the way to the top, and the Rangers will look for that elusive first World Series title against either the Phillies or Diamondbacks. We look at the possible matchups and how the Rangers got here, and look at Dusty’s career with news that he might step away. We also talk a little bit of good Cubs news and rumor, with the reports that Kyle Hendricks is working on an extension with the team.

Former & Shoulda-Been Cubs Power the Phillies & the Ricketts Letter
Away Games | A Chicago Cubs Podcast
by Kevin McCaffrey & Adam Mamawala
6M ago
Not a big week for currrent Cubs news, but a big week for former Cubs that weren’t offered a contract by our team. Schwarber and Castellanos are bombing the Phillies into a 2-0 lead in the NLCS, while the Rangers take two in Houston. We also talk a little about the playoff format and how it does or doesn’t favor the best teams, and peruse the letter Tom Ricketts sent to Cubs fans this week.  Follow us at @awaygamespod on all the things and follow @adammamawala & @kevinmccaff! Leave us a five star rating, would you?  ..read more

Wild Card Recap & DS Talk with Evan Hernandez
Away Games | A Chicago Cubs Podcast
by Kevin McCaffrey & Adam Mamawala
6M ago
Without much Cubs news and with Kevin out of town in Vegas to presumably bet on the Cubbies, friend of the pod Evan Hernandez (Amazon Prime) pinch hits for a playoff recap. We talk about the four Wild Card sweeps, the electric Philly/Atlanta series, whether or not Clayton Kershaw is a certified October choke artist, and the Texas Rangers reaping the rewards of big offseason spending. Get the hint, Ricketts? Will the Dodgers complete an epic comeback? Will the Twins force a game 5? Will Philly recover from a devastating game 2 loss? All that and more on this edition of Away Games.  Follow ..read more

Cubs Miss Playoffs, Hoyer Presser Reaction
Away Games | A Chicago Cubs Podcast
by Kevin McCaffrey & Adam Mamawala
7M ago
Welp, our big postseason episode turned out to be a "post-season" episode. A brutal final week finished an excruciating final month that found the Cubs on the outside of the playoff picture looking in. Despite a 90+% chance to make the playoffs in early September, the team ran out of gas at a critical time. We talk about the final week and how we'll remember this season before doing a live breakdown of Jed's press conference. What we like: Hendricks staying a Cub. What we don't like: a lack of committing to make this team a true World Series contender. It's gonna be a long offseason.  Fol ..read more

Regrouping For Final Week & Trying Not To Lose The Season In The Lights
Away Games | A Chicago Cubs Podcast
by Kevin McCaffrey & Adam Mamawala
7M ago
What a week: Ross smack-talking the Pirates after a bad loss, the Cubs sweeping the Rockies, and then maybe the worst loss of the year as the Cubs blow a 6-0 lead at the Braves, after a shockingly misplayed fly ball. We reset where the Cubs and the other Wild Card contenders are with five games to go, talk about Suzuki’s misplayed ball in right after carrying this offense for more than a month, some nearly equally shocking managing by David Ross, and really take a look at where we are emotionally with the Cubs, which ends up being two different places. One more week of this regular season, fol ..read more
