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. We are aristocrats. There is crying in baseball, but down here, we float. Just like Pagliacci did.

The Cubs split their series with the Cleveland baseball club and will be taking on the Los Angeles Dodgers, who are planning to commence with Walker Buehler on the mound versus Zach Davies. Carson Kelly probably won’t watch. He’ll have time to, unfortunately. Buehler hit him on the right wrist with a pitch last Saturday.
