On this week's episode of Chicago Sports HQ Chatter, we remain in the bulk of the baseball season as Cole and I open the show discussing the Chicago Cubs and their recent run of play.

Does Jed Hoyer or David Ross deserve the most credit for this team's turnaround, and will they be able to keep this play up as the injuries continue to mount?

While the Cubs are on a hot stretch, the White Sox have cooled off a little bit but not all that much. However, Yermin Mercedes has been struggling, and you have to wonder if the Tony La Russa comments got into his head.

We then look at the Cubs minor league system and discuss some of the happenings surrounding the system.

While the MLB season is in full swing, the NCAA baseball tournament is set to begin on Friday, where the Notre Dame Fighting Irish secured the No. 10 overall seed and will host a regional.

What are their chances to not only make it out of the regional but make it to the College World series? Cole and I also look at the ACC tournament format and if they were given a poor seed because of it.

The Chicago Bears have been quiet lately, but they will be bringing in a veteran offensive linemen to try out this week.

Does it make sense for Chicago to add him to their team, and what would it do for this offense?

While the Bulls may be quiet, the NBA front saw a significant shakeup as Danny Ainge steps away as Boston Celtics president, with Brad Stevens leaving his head coaching role to take that position.

We close the show discussing both the Chicago Fire and Chicago Sky and their recent struggles to win games.
