Welcome to today’s episode of Cub Tracks news and notes™. Here we have material from current beat writers, bloggers, and the occasional in-house habitué, moonlighting. These tales center around #Cubs, #MiLB, and #MLB baseball. The content is necessarily abridged, clipped for brevity’s sake.

The heart may tell no tales, but we bring you the tale of Jason McLeod’s inevitable fate, several writers discussing the impending free agency period, and other such auguries, courtesy of the former House of Epstein. Jed Hoyer is now the sole survivor of the original Theo Trio of that House and is hoping to put his stamp on the club, or, failing that, stamp on the club. Who knows which way the pendulum will swing?

Hoyer has recently added to the cast of characters and is said to be planning a sequel. Epstein’s spinoff has been curiously quiet. All this and a bit of revanche from Bernie Lincicome.
