Cub Tracks limbers up

The latest in our long-running series of #Cubs-related news articles. #MLB, #MiLB, too. This one is in the best shape of its life.

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.

There’s no need for me to expound at any length on the rank idiocy of the CBA/CBT “negotiations” here. Al and Sara provide more than enough lucid commentary on the proceedings. So I’ll just have pictures.

This is what we came to see, right? I DEMAND SILLY WALKS AT LEAST.

The links are current as of press time, mid-afternoon usually, unless there’s a game. Not much danger of that right now, but I’ll happily cover minor-league and college ball, which I watch anyway, if the MLB season is tanked. I can walk to the U of Arizona from here. And I’ll cover sims if we have them. Bleed Cubbie Blue is a full-service organization.

Also, long live the Ghost of Kyiv.

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.
