Cub Tracks is still out in the cold

The latest in our long-running series of #Cubs-related news articles. #MLB, #MiLB, too. Even penguins need warmth. Happy birthday, Ron.

Welcome to today’s episode of Cub Tracks news and notes™. Here we have material from current beat writers, bloggers, and the occasional in-house habitué, moonlighting. These pieces center around #Cubs, #MiLB, and #MLB baseball.

Hopefully we can have some MLB ball soon. Otherwise Brandon Palmer will keep on texting. I hate when he texts — he uses nonwords like ‘irregardless’ and non-phrases like ‘would of’ just to get me off my game. It doesn’t work but is annoying.

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). #IStandWithThePlayers.

Cubs birthdays: Charlie Irwin, Footer Johnson, Chuck Estrada, Ron Cey, Rolando Roomes, Brian Williams, Nate Schierholtz. Also notable: Billy Hamilton HOF.

Food for Thought:

Thanks for reading. Cub Tracks and Bleed Cubbie Blue do not necessarily endorse the opinions of writers whose work is linked in this series of articles. We try to present a balanced view, and let the facts speak for themselves.
