On this week's episode of Chicago Sports HQ Chatter, Cole and I dive right into the White Sox and the surprising arrivals of Eloy Jimenez and Luis Robert to their lineup.

Was this the main reason they weren't more aggressive at the deadline, and what will this lineup look like once they finally hit full strength? With Carlos Rodon hitting the IL, what are the White Sox plans for pitching down the stretch as they prep for the postseason?

While the Sox are heading to October, the Cubs are not and are more focused on building for their future.

During their struggles over the last month, plenty of players have emerged as possible solutions for next season.

Where do Patrick Wisdom and Rafael Ortega fit in the Cubs plans, and have they seen enough of Ian Happ?

Could a Brennen Davis September call-up be in the cards, and will Keegan Thompson join Justin Steele as the future of this rotation?

Monday marked the unofficial beginning of the season for the Bulls as they began their summer league season.

What has the emergence of Patrick Williams so far told the Bulls, and is this what fans can expect from him this season?

With the Bears opening their preseason late this weekend, Cole and I briefly discuss what we will look for as the preseason unfolds.

How will the quarterback position be balanced out during the preseason, and what exactly do we expect from the Bears this week?

We close out the show by discussing Luka Stojanovic and his return to the Fire lineup, as well as wishing the Tony Esposito family our condolences on his passing.
