Cub Tracks Feels Independent

Mitchell Layton

So, uh... yeah. This was all done before the Friday trade fireworks. You get it anyway, though I know who you want to talk about! I certainly hope everyone has enjoyed their long holiday weekend. The good news continues to flow as the front office clarifies progress, the team is on the verge of an offensive juggernaut, a couple pitchers look back on their trade experience, Rogers pitches for Lester, and we are lacking cluster luck. If you flipped your consciousness off switch, reverse that for today's Cub Tracks!

Good mix for a Sunday. Maybe some of you will even read them!

  • All-Star talk is all the rage. This look at roster construction includes two Cubs.
  • This is surprising, at least in my mind. But Jesse Rogers thinks Jon Lester could make sense for the Cubs this offseason. (To be clear, my surprise is that Jesse would think this, not necessarily the logic.)
  • I consider this a non-story, but David Ortiz "clarified" that he meant no disrespect to the Cubs when he said day games were a big problem for the franchise.
