Cub Tracks gets basted

#Cubs,#MLB, and #MiLB news you can use, four days a week. I hope Pie Traynor and Felix Pie get their just desserts. The rest of us get the bird.

Welcome to today’s edition of Cub Tracks news and notes™, a greatest-hits collection of Chicago-style beat writers and bloggers, ground from #Cubs, #MiLB, and #MLB baseball, overheated, and then cold-brewed overnight for maximum flavor.

Not to be too obvious, but... Cub Tracks, you know, searches far and wide for suitable content (that we then discard it and keep the rejects is our business). Wednesday, Turkey Day Eve, was no exception. Fortunately, some of the scribes and bloggers actually worked a bit during the pre-holiday celebration, and the ship didn’t do more than a three-hour tour.

Puddles asked that we return his shoes to the bullpen. I had them cloned and sold a pair to the Blackhawks’ power play.

Are the Cubs going to remain at sea next year? Are their plans to contend all wet? We will address these and other pressing questions as we examine the irons the Cubs have in the fire.

* 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. The powers that be have enabled sarcasm font in the comments.
