Cub Tracks Loses Traction

Sammy Sosa's vote tally for the Hall of Fame is dwindling. Who, or what, is to blame? Plenty of reactions plus a Number 34 sighting, an excited Joe Maddon, and a 220-year-old time capsule in Thursday's Cub Tracks.

Somewhat random advice from Cub Tracks: For those of you who are maybe thinking about getting a cat, here's my input. Our family has three of them, one American Shorthair and two Russian Blues.  They're great pets, very low-maintenance, and I absolutely love them.

But man, they can certainly make it hard to try and write a story on the computer. Or use my iPad. So be prepared for that tradeoff.

(Yes, Graci. I'm still paying attention to you. Now can I have my keyboard back, please?)

From the Chicago Tribune via RedEye Chicago:

  • Paul Sullivan also chimes in on Sosa's Hall of Fame vote decline and thinks that Sosa probably has one more shot before having to rely on the Veterans Committee down the road. In other words, he has one more shot.

From the Chicago Sun-Times:

  • What does Rick Telander have to say about Sosa's vote decline? Blame Bud Selig.

From Cubs Den:

  • Turning to prospects, John Arguello looks at Cub prospects that didn't make the recent Baseball America list but he feels can break out in 2015.
  • And while we all look forward to Kris Bryant, Kyle Schwarber, and Addison Russell, don't forget that Anthony Rizzo is pretty good.
