5-2. Pederson SO w/bags jammed. Ouch.

At press time, the Cubs’ best starter is still doing the limbo, the team can’t hit a lick, and good teams are arriving. Their backs are against the wall — maybe this is how they like it? The Cubs need to show some signs of life soon, instead of floundering. There is water at the bottom of the ocean. Was 2016 once in a lifetime?

If they fail, will we start to see sell-by dates? Or is the time now? C’mon, throwing in the towel is perfectly in tune with the occasion. 42, right? Same as it ever was.


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.

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.
