SHOW NOTES

* Doug Flutie.

1:38: Can This Be Real?

* "With Wednesday's doubleheader sweep at the hands of the Padres, six of the Cubs' seven losses this season have been to teams that are now under .500, ESPN Stats & Info points out."

* "1984 Detroit Tigers, can stumble. After starting 35-5, the Tigers' division lead dwindled to three and a half games by early June."

* 1984 Tigers season.

* The McDonald's Padres.

* George Sun.

* Theo: 'This Is Where Soler Belongs.'

* Arrieta Already On Way Out.

* The Fallacy Of How The Cubs Were Built.

38:25: Local Amateur Team Also Having Good Season.

* Hawk Harrelson Dashes Out Of Booth During The Broadcast To Check On Todd Frazier's Minor Injury; Internet's Head Explodes.

College Admission Scandal Grew Out Of A System Already Rigged With 'Side Doors'
