Gosh, how we’ve grown. Here at Cub Tracks, we are winding up the fifth year of the reign under Duane (and closing in on the eighth anniversary overall) with two weeks of relatively serious speculations about the future of the team and the game, coupled with a relative few serious articles from bloggers and beats alike. In fact most of the beats seem to be on vacation, and there’s very little to write about in the gray areas of the extended silly season after that miniaturized and very silly Cubs postseason and a regular season fitted with tensions more suited to Colosseums and Stadia than Parks and Fields.

The Romans would have loved it. They’d have been thumbing stuff down with abandon and introducing lions into the mix. That should only be done with golf. Or my relatives.

Can you imagine golf, with lions? I can. Or tackle golf. Sorry if you like golf. Well, sorta. But I’m sure you get the point. We’ll use Paper Lions, if we have to. For this and other grave matters, here’s Cub Tracks 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.


Yu Darvish and Kwang-Hyun Kim duel at 11 a.m. CT at Chavez Ravine. The Dodgers lead the NLCS 3-1. Hopefully there’s more baseball after that. All game video and related material is available commercial-free, 24/7, at the BCB Media Center.
