Welcome back, my friends. 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. We are in the best shape of our lives (round), tanned, rested, ready (to go back to sleep at a moment’s notice unless there is plenty of coffee), and it’s time for baseball again.

Only time and Nostradamus know what’s coming, and only time will tell. I do wish to explain, though, that my lightly edited comments in the BCB Roundtable included the assertion that the Cubs will play the Padres, who will win the wild-card game over the Nationals. And they will lose ... or so goes the scenario. That means that the Braves, Cubs, and Dodgers are division winners in 2021. And I will continue to hate the Padres.

I have my Cubs gear on, Vienna Beef dogs ready for the grill, and I’m ready for THE SHOW.

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.)

Thanks for reading! We will even graciously allow you to get us coffee. Yes, that’s right. We haz a tip jar.
