Cub Tracks Dreams Of Arizona

Christian Petersen

Almost all the Cub news is coming from the team's home out west. There is plenty of prospect news to make you believe in a brighter future. Check out the write-up on the team's international signings doing a lot of learning, catch up on the Arizona Fall League, and get an update on the soon to be spring training home. And find out which Cub ranking should give you food for thought.

Thinking of three witty intros a week is hard enough when the Cubs are playing. It's far too exhausting now. But hey, you get what you pay for.

From Comcast SportsNet

  • Since most of you are sick of this topic in general, I'm not going to link all the different articles related to the team's recent depressing anniversary. If you'd like to check out any of them, go here. I didn't find anything particularly compelling because I just want to quit thinking about it and look forward. But it may interest some/many of you.
  • The food at Wrigley Field ranked second in the big leagues. I find this patently preposterous.
  • Cub prospects are starring in the Arizona Fall League.

From Cubs Den

  • I've stayed away from most managerial updates, but I thought this guest post about Dave Martinez learning under the tutelage of Joe Maddon was interesting.
  • Cubs Den looks back at a time the Cubs almost got it right.
  • This will be skippable for many of you, but here's a scouting report on one of the college arms who may be in play when the Cubs select fourth in next summer's amateur draft.
  • This is, pretty easily, the most informational and interesting link of the day. It is a collection of Cubs notes. Topics include: a veritable boatload of updates and reports on Cub prospects, an update on the managerial interviews (including why the media is silly for naming favorites), and a scouting report for one of the offseason's biggest prizes.

From Cubs.com

  • Here's a video update on the team's new spring training facility.
  • The Cubs splurged on the International Free Agent market this summer. Two of the top prospects, Eloy Jimenez and Gleyber Torres, are among those learning about life on and off the field at the instructional league. This is a really good read, even if you're not big into "signing children".

From the Chicago Tribune

From the Chicago Sun-Times

  • Nothing.

Today's food for thought

  • I'm normally rather dismissive of most internet lists. But this one caught my eye and made me laugh at work. It is 99 real life "hacks".
