Here at CUB TRACKS NEWS AND NOTES™, we have news for you. The Cubs and Cardinals skirmished on a Saturday. The Cubs celebrated Andre Dawson’s birthday by grounding into double plays and bringing relievers in to give up bombs. Sergio Alcantara spent his birthday at third base watching said bombs fly overhead, ignited by a gawdawful bad nonstrike call.

Hard to watch. I’m sorry, but bringing in Adam Morgan to pitch is as clear a sign of giving up as Theo walking was. We knew what the score was then. And watching a game like this, with this gamethread-wording terrible broadcast crew and their Cardinal luv, just makes it worse.

Not that the standard for national broadcasting is very high. But these tools make the bell curve convex.

Maybe we should learn to like lawn mowers. Here’s to crop circles in the outfield.
