Oh, I’m about thirty feet tall right now...hey, welcome to Sunday morning at BCB. It’s still 1965 here, as I’m screening Svengoolie, who is showing the Tommy Kirk vehicle Village of the Giants, which begs for the MST3K treatment, except that I hate that. The movie also has Beau Bridges and Toni Basil, and the Beau Brummels. Fun stuff, if just awful bad. Sorta like watching the Cubs used to be, back when I was growing up. The first game I went to was in 1965. I also went to a concert at Comiskey Park that year, cuz my folks couldn’t get a babysitter on short notice. Yeah yeah yeah!

And on that note, we interrupt the Addison Russell Show to bring you today’s Cubs News and Notes, such as they are. As always * means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and Chrome). Let’s get small ;)

  • Jordan Bastian (MLB.com*): Inbox: Do Cubs boast best starting 5 in game? “...it’s certainly within the top 10.”
  • 679 TheScore: Kyle Hendricks on Cubs offseason [AUDIO].
  • Brett Taylor (Bleacher Nation): Jake Arrieta warns younger players about what’s going on in baseball: “You’re Next”. “...it’s jarring to see a player so plainly laying out one of the fundamental problems between the owners and the players.”

Food for thought:

Thanks for reading.
