Cubs Corner with Bob Fiorante: MLB 2020 Predictions

On this edition of the Cubs Corner presented by Coach’s Bar and Grill, Anthony talked with AL expert a Robert Fiorante, and the pair breakdown each division and give their predictions.

(As far as the situation at our sponsor Coach’s Bar and Grill, located at 6169 N Northwest Highway — they are open for curbside pickup and delivery, as well as a beer garden, patio and limited indoor seating as they progress through phase four of governor JB Pritzker’s plan to reopen Illinois.)

Although the season will only be 60 games, there will be a full postseason — and every team has a heightened chance at making the playoffs this year than ever before.
