It’s Saturday. Real actual Spring Training baseball starts in a couple of days. Optimism reigns, for now. The players are in the best shape of their lives. Tanned, rested, ready, my fellow Americans.

Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant and company are right around the hot corner. Cameron Maybin, Jake Marisnick, Nick Martini and Michael Hermosillo will be vying for the fourth and fifth outfield spots, following Joc Pederson, Ian Happ, and Jason Heyward.

Kyle Hendricks will start Monday. There are spots open on the staff and the infield, as well. Let’s hope for spirited competition and plenty of good baseball.

Here’s Cub Tracks News and Notes, the only listicle you’ll need. 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.)

Food for Thought:

Thanks for reading.
