Cub Tracks: Chasing Rabbits in Nashville

New, comments

To quote noted sharpshooter Elmer Fudd: " It's wabbit season, and I'm hunting wabbits, so be vewy, vewy quiet! " Of course, Elmer doesn't catch much when he's chasing Bugs Bunny, but he still chases every lead, sound and... ahem... (Cub) Tracks. The Cubs' beat journalists serve as the entertaining Mr. Fudd... chasing rumor rabbits. The silly (hunting) season is officially underway.

Theo says he always appreciate this media flash mobs where reporters all ask the same question, in search of the holy grail --- the scoop.

If we follow these mighty hunters... we might learn what makes them tick. We also learn what kind of game they may chase next.

Quick protocol note -- there will be roughly a billion and a half rumors about who the Cubs will or won't acquire this week. I'm not going to do a bunch of linking of those kinds of articles because: a) most of them are baseless rumors and speculation, 2) they'll be old info by the time Cub Tracks gets published, and iii) see 'a'.
