Cub Tracks Is Envious

Jonathan Daniel

Seeing the Stanley Cup at Wrigley. Watching the Pirates and the rest of the NL Central run roughshod over the Cubs. It's enough to make a fan a little envious. That's ok, to a point. But if (when?) you get mad or frustrated at the Cubs' struggles, what you need to do is this: go read Al's fanshot (yes, they still exist, people) that links to a sobering article about a young boy's terminal condition and the kind acts (and stunning maturity) of Nationals' outfielder Bryce Harper.

Lots 'o links for a Sunday.

By the way: I strongly advocated for signing Francisco Liriano. Just sayin'.

From Cubs Den

  • The Cubs need to "win" a Matt Garza trade. Well, yeah.
  • If the Cubs are just ignoring IFA spending limits (which I doubt and/or feel like something must have changed amidst all the trades), what does it all mean? Real nice write-up.

From the Chicago Tribune (register to see almost anything but videos)

From the Chicago Sun-Times

From the Daily Herald

  • Plenty of pitching moves and Jed Hoyer "unfiltered" in Bruce's blog.
  • The Pirates are showing the Cubs how it is done. Kinda makes all that "Pittsburgh West" garbage even sillier (and, no, it won't take the Cubs 20 years to be good again).
  • Blackhawks Brandon Bollig and Bryan Bickell enjoyed their day at Wrigley.

Today's food for thought
