On this week’s edition of the Cubs Corner podcast, Anthony talked with WGN sports anchor Dan Roan.

Although Roan is commonly mistaken for color commentator Jim Deshaies, Roan has seen Cubs triumph and heartbreak since 1984 with WGN.

Now as WGN moves on from the Cubs and the Cubs from WGN, Roan and the rest of the network will have a lot of adapting to do.

In their conversation, Roan tells Anthony his predictions on the future of some Cubs players.

Will these players be on the Cubs when the 2020 season starts?

Kris Bryant: no

Willson Contreras: yes

Anthony Rizzo: yes

Javier Baez: yes

Cole Hamels: no

Pedro Strop: no

Brandon Kintzler: yes

Steve Cishek: no

Nick Castellanos: unfortunately, no

Kyle Schwarber: yes

Ben Zobrist: yes

Among other things, the two discussed the new manager hire, as Anthony and Dan agreed they would have chosen Ross as well.

Check out this and more on this week’s edition of the Cubs Corner.
