Cub Tracks Takes Your Questions. Really.

There's a new feature coming to BCB. Read on...

You don't have to raise your hand, Jay. And get to work against the Redskins.
You don't have to raise your hand, Jay. And get to work against the Redskins.

We, the writers of BCB, want to answer your questions. So a new feature will be starting soon: the still-to-be-named Writers' Roundtable. You ask questions, we'll give answers. So submit your questions here in this column. Al will pick the best of the bunch and a variety of BCB writers will give you their take. Keep most of them Cub-focused, but we might even take something off the beaten path.

Just think: you get to ask us questions... and then tell us why our answers are wrong! What could be better??

On to the links.

From Comcast SportsNet

  • David Kaplan lobbies the Cubs to make a bold hire for their manager's seat.
  • Darwin Barney had a dreadful season with the bat. So what's the team's second base situation look like next year?

From Cubs Den

  • I've just got to say, Cubs Den is doing an excellent job of collecting content during this normally tough time of year to write.
  • This blog is always on the prospect bandwagon. They argue why you shouldn't sleep on Dallas Beeler when looking at prospects in the Arizona Fall League.
  • And here's a Q&A with prospect Ben Carhart, one of the young guys making the defensive switch to move behind the plate.
  • Another big set of notes, take 1 topics: the tender decision with reliever Daniel Bard, the team's interest in a Korean pitcher (watch the video in the link, it's a fun watch), and there's video of recent top pick Kris Bryant lighting up the Arizona Fall League.
  • More notes, take 2 topics: more notes on next year's draft and a couple other links.
  • And notes, take 3 topics: Kris Bryant goes crazy (krazy?) in Arizona, a video link to a pair of recent Cub top pitching draftees and top IFA signing Eloy Jimenez (apparently, the instructional league squads held a game for Theo Epstein and members of the front office), and a smattering of other prospect updates and managerial notes.


  • There's some encouraging news on Mike Olt. His eye condition seems to be improving with more treatment.
