The Beachwood Radio Sports Hour #15: Super Bears Or Bust

Plus: The Sky Is Burning; Prospects Are Suspects Until Proven Otherwise, And So Is Starlin Castro; Cubs Striving For Normalcy; Deadspin Is Dead Wrong; and much, much more!


00:32: Bears Brown Out.

* Befuddled.

* Puzzled.

* Secret scheme?

* SportsMonday: Shell-Shocked.

* The Patriots test.

* Trestman as the Anti-Lovie - for better and possibly worse.

* The Blue & Orange Kool-Aid Report: Back Toub The Future.

* Ceilings, floors.

* Bears vs. Bills (yawn).

* Super Bowl or bust.

26:53: The Sky Is Burning!

* Lyme disease.

* Elena Delle Donne, everybody.

"Despite trailing by 17 early in the fourth quarter, the Chicago Sky weren't ready to give up on their season. Instead, they kept their focus and pulled off the biggest fourth-quarter comeback in WNBA playoff history," AP reports.

"Elena Delle Donne scored 17 of her 34 points in the final period, including the winning jumper with 8.4 seconds left, as the Sky rallied from 20 points down to beat the Atlanta Dream 81-80 on Tuesday night and advance to the Eastern Conference finals."

Stump the Coach: The Sky's opener against the Indiana Fever is actually Saturday night in Indiana; Game Two is Monday night in Rosemont and that's the game, of course, that you can go see instead of giving your hard-earned cash to the fabulously wealthy Ricketts family to watch a minor league team.

32:05: It's Jorge Time.

* But prospects are still suspects until proven otherwise.

* Cubs striving for normalcy.

* This week's model: Kansas City.

* All hail Jose Abreu.

* The White Sox are still closer to contending than the Cubs, but the franchise is so damn boring.

* Remember when Welington Castillo was the next Yadier Molina? I do. It was just last year.

49:08: Wishing Upon A Starlin.

* Cubs Fine With Soft Handling Of Starlin Castro.

* Kubs Kulture.

* Ricky Renteria: New Dale.

* Ricky Renteria mug shot.

56:50: Deadspin Is Dead Wrong.

* Why Your Team Sucks 2014: Chicago Bears.

* Coffman actually did grow up near Cabrini-Green.
