Cub Tracks Is Filled With Promise

Most of the articles are taking a more positive turn. Whether it is glowing farm reports, big leaguers taking steps, or draft signings on the way, many things are looking up. And before you stare into the future (2015), I assign some homework.

Look! Four good players!

CSN -- gettin' it done. There are a LOT of really interesting, and chat worthy, links today. So I hope you'll click.

  • A couple reporters are weighing in on Jeff Samardzija trade rumors.
  • I don't link often to the Anarchist's Brunch. This edition was on Kyle Schwarber. I link it because, while it's a little over the top, it does have some interesting views on how many Cub fans (probably pointed at the "Theobots," mostly) viewed the recent number one pick.
  • One Cubs Den writer dreams of Giancarlo Stanton in a Cub line-up.
  • John Arguello takes a little broader view to looking at what the 2015 Cubs could look like. I do believe an "I'll believe it when I see it" mentality is not only justified, but warranted. However, the article does point to how this team may be closer to turning the corner than some seem to think.


  • Mike Olt is homering, but striking out. A lot.
  • Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro are worthy of All-Star consideration. But they need your votes to get in the starting line-up (it's not going to happen, but I'll play along).
