Here at CUB TRACKS NEWS AND NOTES™, we have news for you. The Home Run Derby is boring, that’s not really news. Excruciating, really. The format and the announcers make it an exercise in masochism for me, just as it probably would be for Venus, furs or no.

Sort of like watching the Cubs, without the fandom angle to make it palatable. And there are no Cubs in it.

Not so much coverage to cover today. Nobody was traded, yet.

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.)

Food for thought:

Thanks for reading.
