Here at CUB TRACKS NEWS AND NOTES™, we have #Cubs, #MiLB, and #MLB news for you, optimized for SEO and ready to go. The Cubs have added GM Carter Hawkins, a development specialist, to the mix. It’s a good hire, most likely. Still would have preferred Carlos Rodriguez but I reckon they have their reasons.

So, a plot twist in the prevailing narrative, and we have yet to see what subplots that will spin. December looms, and then things promise to get interesting. Tom Ricketts said some things, too, and the panel will unwrap that a little. Plus more, below.

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.)

In a letter Friday, Ricketts assures Cubs fans that “we have the resources necessary to compete in 2022 and beyond, and we will use them.”

“We will be active in free agency and continue to make thoughtful decisions to bolster our team this offseason,” Ricketts continued. — Meghan Montemurro.
