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.

That game didn’t start out well. The gopher balls need flat-out to go back to the simCubs. It would be nice if the home plate ump called strikes strikes. Also, it would be nice if the Cubs swung at strikes. Or learned to hit sliders. Or some thing.

Maybe they should start the games in the second inning from now on. Arg. Maybe the third. Yeesh.

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.)
