Less than a week remains before Spring Training starts. I dunno about you, but I can’t wait. Not just for the baseball, but because I genuinely enjoy reading all of the articles to find the best ones to share here. Writers tend to be researchers — indeed it fills more of the time than the actual writing, in many cases. We do Google-fu.

And on that note, here’s today’s episode of Cubs News and Notes, the only links column that really matters. 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.

Food for thought:

Thanks for reading. RIP Kirk.
