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 so we regret to inform you that Lorenzo Cain happened. Twice. The Cubs will have to take two out of three against the Brewers at Milwaukee next week in order to even up the season series.

They sure made it interesting, though. This team is in the best shape of their lives, and they don’t have any quit in them.

.500 doesn’t mean ‘panic.’ But the Cubs are going to have to find some bats that have hits in them. I wonder if Matt Szczur has any on hand that they can borrow...

Also, we officially hate the man-on-second-in-extras rule. It makes us use gamethread 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.)

Food for thought:

Thanks for reading. Tip jar.
