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 pieces center around #Cubs, #MiLB, and #MLB baseball.

The Cubs are going to be buying from the scrap heap, it looks like. Players worth having are disappearing rapidly. The Cardinals have rolled out the welcome Matz, thereby foiling part of my projected roster, and it’s beginning to look like the only Cooperstown most of the lineup will be visiting has foot-long weiners on the menu and a Hall-of-Fame lefty on the management team. Lamentable!

What a drag it is, these gold lame jeans.
