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.

Lots of storylines leading into Monday night’s game: Old friends, teams that have met in the recent postseason and aren’t doing so well, players rounding into shape. Keep that video away from my hot dogs!

And the game delivered. Lester mustered the Maddux zone but strayed into the hit’me zone periodically. Adbert got hit hard by the middle of the Nationals’ lineup but pitched with obvious relish for the competition. Good times. Al can describe the goings-on in his recap. I really would have liked to be at that game. I miss Chicago sometimes ... but then it snows.

Tommy Nance has some stuff. What a great story, if he can keep it up.

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.)
