Here at CUB TRACKS NEWS AND NOTES, we like to keep things brief on the principle that it makes us appear wise. Unless we feel a rant. But we don’t mind a little informing with the entertaining. And we are short but sweet, like Danny De Vito with a lollipop.

Bear with us as we sample the zeitgeist and regurgitate the remnants. The big stories include Adbert Alzolay seemingly making the rotation and Nico Hoerner being sent down for “seasoning.” Well, at least for 36 days. Mike Olt would recognize this scenario.

The front page covered that adequately, I should think. We’ll have more, as that’s what we do. But wait, there’s more!

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.)

“This is less about Nico and more about David Bote. Bote had a great spring. It’s an opportunity for David that he’s earned and deserves. It’s a chance to play every day at second base.

“I don’t think it’s fair for Nico to come off the bench and have sporadic at-bats. That’s not setting him up for success. And I think David Bote earned the job.” — David Ross.
