Cub Tracks’ puff piece

Heyman cites industry speculation, there’s a lot of value in extra time off, the headless chicken monster, and other bullets

Well, here we are again, on the day after the second anniversary of the Cubs winning the pennant, trying to make sense of speculation and preparing to enter into the hot stove season with our potholders ready to go. At least, I’m holding my pot — I dunno about you — but the big question of the day is whether the Cubs still have their stuff after an early exit this year...

Before this devolves into a Cheech y Chong routine, let’s address that and the other important questions of the day (that we don’t have any answers for) with the help of our usual panel of experts. We’re still not oversupplied with articles, but there are some quality efforts today. BP Wrigleyville’s Ken Schultz wrote a good joint and the ubiquitous Todd Johnson has a nice sleeper pick. Vinnie Duber and Phil Rosenthal provide the doom and gloom over the ‘Joe Girardi thing’ and Tony Andracki handles the ‘rest’. ESPN and the Sun-Times are still absent and Cubs Den has been hibernating for quite a while. Dave’s not here.
