Cubs Talk Podcast: PECOTA projections and Javy Baez

Gone are the days where Cubs fans would set their offseason clocks by national prospect rankings, treating each new release like Christmas morning and daydreaming about the day all these young kids would be starring at the corner of Clark and Addison.
