Cub Tracks is snowed in

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

Before we jump into today’s Cub Tracks, just wanted to share the good news that Duane will be returning to take over the series starting this Saturday. We’re obviously thrilled to have him back and I hope I’ve been a passable substitute while he was away. Thanks everyone, and welcome back, Duane!

Everyone comfortable? Tucked in at home with the heat up and your best slippers? Hopefully, you don’t have to shovel four hundred times today.

We haven’t forgotten the lockout (who could) and the latest news seems to be that there is, in fact, something both sides can agree on, and some NL fans aren’t going to be happy about it. Yes, friends, it appears that we’ll need to brace ourselves for the universal DH. It’s coming, and now the question is, does this change anything in terms of what the Cubs will be looking for on the free agent market? We won’t dwell on this too deeply here as there will be more said about it in the future, but it’s time to get ready for it.

This has been a busy week with February being Black History Month and February 2 being National Girls and Women in Sports Day, so there are some themed social media posts below regarding those events.

Cubs birthdays: Joe Coleman; Don Kaiser; and Newt Randall.

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.
