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.

Arrieta started and looked good (would have been great if not for those damn gophers), Hoerner started and barreled balls, barely missed a sweet bunt. KB’s wrist seemed okay as he launched a two-run oppo bomb. There was some additional offense generated, and lots of warning-track fly balls as the Cubs prevailed, with help from Andrew Chafin and Craig Kimbrel.

It’s 420 feet to straight center field in Detroit. Just sayin’. Weed will be in the concession stands before too long. You know it will.

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.)

“I really didn’t know anything about it, I didn’t have any interest in it,” Sandberg said. “Now it’s every day sometimes, as I’m looking for something to take the edge off.”
