Me and a finite amount of untrained monkeys are proud to bring to you today’s neo-Shakespearean tragicomedy, courtesy of our sponsor, Monday.

I don’t like Mondays any better than Brenda Spencer did (except for Rick Monday, who was one of my favorite players), for reasons I don’t care to go into right now. Monday the 21st was no exception to the general rule and no baseball made it worse.

Today, though, there’s baseball, and dry floors, and that’s good enough for me. Always look on the bright side, Eric Idle. The Cubs are at .500 after 20 games.

Anyway... today we have hot takes and pissing in the cornflakes by the usual suspects. Rick Morrissey has one that I find hard to follow, about Christian Yelich’s success making it more difficult to watch Kris Bryant. See what you think. Jordan Bastian has a saner take on the same concern. Larry Hawley has been reading Sarah’s stuff, seemingly... and Steve Greenberg says the Dodgers broke the Cubs. The Nico Hoerner watch continues... and more, in today’s Cubs News and Notes. As always, * means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and Chrome).

Food for thought:

Thanks for reading!
