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, two of which are in suspended animation at the moment.

The beats are mostly still on holiday. The bloggers, however, are as on-target as NORAD after Santa Claus, and we have quite a few good stories below.

The 12 Days of Cubsmas, cont’d on next rock.

On the sixth day of Cubsmas, Jed Hoyer gave to me:

One starting pitcher

Two hitting coaches

Three glove-first fielders

Four bullpen arms


Six righty hurlers

and a beer

And with a blip and a bloop, we move on.
