Cub Tracks Is Tormented By Tryptophan

USA TODAY Sports

That blasted chemical put me in a food coma and I'm not alone. The beat writers are sluggish, too, and can pretty much only write about Jeff Samardzija. So Cub Tracks welcomes December and will keep the rumor mill churning.

I have the feeling we're going to be chasing Shark rumors well into 2014.

  • There's been plenty of debate about whether the Cubs should trade Jeff Samardzija. But who actually has the pieces to acquire the hurler? (Insider only)
  • Brandon Hyde is the Cubs new bench coach. And he thinks the job is a great fit (well, I would hope so!).
