Cub Tracks Has No Regrets

Surely no regrets that the Cubs drafted Javier Baez. - USA TODAY Sports

Just like former Cub great Ryne Sandberg, that is. While the W/L results this year will likely be regrettable, we're all looking for pieces for next year. Find some today in Cub Tracks. And is Javier Baez on the move?

Frankly, not a lot of inspiration in today's links. PED talk makes me sleepy.

From Comcast SportsNet

  • Carlos Villanueva thinks baseball needs even harsher penalties for PED users.
  • Phillies' bench coach, and Cubs Hall of Famer, Ryne Sandberg has no regrets.
  • Josh included this in one of his articles, but a former Cubs' farmhand posted another 'W', "winning" The Bachelorette.
  • Cubs pitching prospect Kyle Hendricks is definitely turning heads (includes video). It's, as you'd expect from a Dartmouth guy, a well-spoken interview. Of particular baseball note, part of Hendricks' success is developing his slurve this year. By the way, Hendricks will make his debut for the Iowa Cubs today.
  • Funny note, to me anyway, about CTL last night. Kaplan had some goofball from Yahoo radio on among a couple other guests. They were talking about whether Cub fans were more excited for the minor leaguers than the major league club. Fair point to debate and there are plenty of pros and cons you can discuss about a "total rebuild". But the Yahoo guy (apt description) kept ranting about Cub fans being sold a bill of goods, why prospects never work out, how the Cubs are trying the "same thing" the Kansas City Royals have (and look where that got them), and the team will just end up like the Houston Astros. When I was done shaking my head, all I could think was "I didn't know NBF had a radio show." (EDIT: Here's the link to the discussion.)

From Cubs Den

  • There are already more interesting pieces for the 2014 bullpen on hand than you might think at first.
  • You can also check out "who's on first?" in the organization.
