Cub Tracks is of course on board with beheadings, as long as they’re televised. I won’t name any actual names but there are people who I would submit as possibilities for such treatment. It isn’t cruel if you do it quick and it isn’t unusual if you do a lot of it.

This is all very horrorshow but I’m on board with that as well. Does the name Berwyn mean anything to you? I knew it would. Pardon the plug, neighbor.

The Cubs have been a horror show lately, we all know that. It has been the subject of several hundred running jokes and/or baseball columns. Jon Lester, however, did not seem to have read those, and went totally beastly in the matinee, pitching as though someone was anointing his rubber chicken with wolfsbane, or maybe trying to get him to eat Matt Carpenter’s salsa. I dunno. But he pitched his tail off and was rewarded with a Kris Bryant deep fly that felt like a game-winner. Could the pendulum swing back the other way? Would it?

Berr-wyn! Here’s today’s Cubs News and Notes. As always, * means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and Chrome). {$} means paywall. {$} means limited views. Italics are often used here as sarcasm font. Recap here.
