In this week's episode of Chicago Sports HQ Chatter Cole and I dive right into the baseball world to discuss the odds and ends surrounding the Cubs and White Sox.

How much longer can these teams survive their injury woes, and who makes a move first on the trade market?

Given the Cubs' struggles with backup catchers, would the Cubs be wise to get Wilson Ramos?

We also look at Notre Dame's weekend at the Super Regionals and discuss how the new substance policy in the MLB could affect a lot of today's starters.

With football on the verge of NFL training camp, how likely is it that Justin Fields beats out Andy Dalton in week one? Has Matt Nagy's recent comments given you hope for the season, or have they left you wanting more?

While the Cubs and Sox continue to deal with injuries, the NBA playoffs have been hampered with injuries, and they keep coming.

How does this affect the future of the game and their ratings, and what needs to happen for their stars to remain healthy?

We close out the show by discussing the Chicago Fire's return to the field this weekend, along with the sudden resurgence of the Chicago Sky led by the return of Candace Parker.
