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.

This edition brought to you by the committee to keep Jeff Bezos in outer space in perpetuity, and by Spider Tack. Here’s the spin on the spin, from Fangraphs. MLB’s plan is as clear as an Angel Hernandez strike zone. Going to be an interesting week coming up.

Cubs vs Marlins, three-game series, game one. Zach Davies (4-3, 4.01) vs. Cody Poteet ( 2-2, 3.75). Davies wore it. 8 runs, ouch. Chris Myers gets excited for Marlins homers. Throw him back, please.


Let’s do better today. Jake Arrieta (5-7. 5.14) is scheduled versus Pablo Lopez (2-4, 3.12).

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.)
