The Chicago Cubs have reached the National League Champion Series for the first time in a dozen years. That 2003 team… which fell short in reaching the World Series included utility outfielder Doug Glanville, who also started his career with the Cubs.  
He’s better known today as an analyst for ESPN, and a columnist for the New York Times and Newsweek. Illinois Public Radio’s Jeff Bossert talked with Glanville about what might separate the 2015 team from postseason failures of years past.
IPR’s Jeff Bossert talked with former major league outfielder and ESPN analyst Doug Glanville.  When asked his World Series predictions, Glanville says he’s already been wrong about some other teams this year.  But he does say the Kansas City Royals are the most polished and experienced team of the four still playing. The Cubs and New York Mets play game one in their best-of-seven series Saturday night.
