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.

It’s been mooted about lately that the owners might not be in lock-step. Brett Taylor has some thoughts about that. I don’t know about you, but I’m not surprised. They never really have been, according to all of the data I’ve amassed while on the baseball history beat.

Lots more lockout talk and some actual baseball speculation on tap. Pull up a stool and I’ll serve some up.

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).

Cubs birthdays: Wilbur Cooper, Pinky Pittenger, Lynn Nelson, Earl Grace, Mike Sember, Rob Bowen. Also notable: Honus Wagner HOF, Eddie Murray HOF.
