Cub Tracks rolls the bones

#Cubs and #MLB news you can use.

ILLUSTRATION: Dice

It’s a dicey proposition, but the Cubs got out the checkbooks this weekend. Two pitchers and an outfielder join the squad heading into spring training, whenever that should happen. None are THE GUY that everyone wanted but all three have MLB innings under their belts and that has to count for something. We’re trying to mull over what it all means.

Kohl Stewart and Trevor Williams can at least be penciled into the rotation battle and Joc Pederson has the inside track to the left-field post at press time. It could be worse — in fact, it was, a few days ago.

Cub Tracks isn’t ready to take the lemon pledge yet, but we’ll track to wax a little more positive on these pages, at least until something untoward happens. However, we’re willing to gamble that the good times won’t last. The situation is far from static.

Here’s Cub Tracks News and Notes, your every-other-day-except-on-weekends escape from the humdrum. 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. In the text body. It doesn’t work in the headlines.)
