I’m not going to dance around the truth — each run scored felt like a touchdown. These are tough times, Cub fans. I see lots of you out on that ledge already, doing the can’t look away conga.

The McAndrew linelooms. Everybody limbo.

Here at CUB TRACKS NEWS AND NOTES™, we like to keep things brief on the principle that it makes us appear wise. We don’t always, but we like to. Sometimes a picture is a thousand words. Sometimes the caption speaks louder than a thousand words.

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.)

“A guy like Alec Mills, you could look back at the end of the year and say a guy like him is going to be like the MVP of our pitching staff.” — Tommy Hottovy.
