Cub Tracks busman’s holiday

#Cubs,#MLB, and #MiLB news you can use, four days a week. No Cubs deals so far. Maybe they’ll be under the tree.

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.

The pool keeps on widening. Cody Bellinger, Michael Conforto, Jameson Taillon, all are listed as Cubs targets by Bleacher Nation. Cubs Insider has Conforto, Taillon (and Andrew Heaney). Lots of beats are still on vaycay.

No Black Friday deals, unless you count the fish dinner we had at a place we’ve passed by dozens of times. And you probably don’t, though I do. Today I’m smoking a turkey. Hard to keep lit but such a good high. Ba dum tss!

Enjoy your weekend. Be excellent to each other. Be kind to animals. War is unhealthy for children and other living things.
