It’s that time in the Hot Stove Season when baseball executives are trying a little tenderness. And there’s so much at stake these days, as budgets shrink according to how much money those execs think they failed to earn with the pandemic and all of its effects. Whatever it is, it’s for sale.

Wednesday should bring plenty of news. But this is what we have today, as the national writers/unofficial spokespeople determine the spin cycle and the beats rinse the dirt off and put it back on the grill.

Let’s remember that the people running the show are so goddamn crooked that they have trouble screwing their pants on. But the game itself still has beauty. I prefer the stare but I’ll take the flip.

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 on this page as sarcasm font. (In the comments section, use @ before and after your remarks @ to produce sarcasm font.)

Thanks for reading.
