Cub Tracks watches and waits

The latest in our long-running series of #Cubs-related news articles. #MLB, #MiLB, too. This one is old hat.

It’s Watch And Wait For Baseball Strike

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.

We have some good reading today, people. Mooney and Sharma leave some marks with their analysis, and Brett Taylor gets ‘nerdy’. Others come up with careful considerations worth thinking about. And who knows? Perhaps we will have baseball this year, against all apparent odds. Tim Stebbins has some ideas about how circus-like that would be.

Cubbies Crib’s Jake Misener, who writes more articles than anyone else this side of Al Yellon, contributes a couple of pieces about young players. And we have an article about the ancillary effects of the lockout on the town of Mesa. Happy reading, and welcome to the weekend.

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. 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.
