It wasn't a great week for the Cubs, who dropped five of seven games to the Mets and Marlins. And yet, they wake up on Monday still in first place in the NL Central, and they may have discovered a silver lining during the 2-5 week. Could Alec Mills be part of the answer to their rotation woes? Brett, Sahadev and Patrick get into that on this episode of Onto Waveland.

They also discuss the backup catcher situation, the dominance of the Tepera-Chafin-Kimbrel trio, the possibility of a small trade, and the team's uncanny ability to salvage the last game of a series.
