Seattle Mariners v Chicago Cubs

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 never rains but it pours, eh?

Cub Tracks apologizes in advance for anything too absurd or off-color in the contents of this listicle. I for one would like to voice a complaint as to the tenor of our times and would gladly sing the praises of anyone who can make it more harmonious, even though I am probably preaching to the choir. Hot off the front page:

It is an open question as to whether the players and owners are merely posing or whether intense bargaining is really taking place. For all I know they’re all in there downing margaritas and playing endless rounds of Donkey Kong, or placing bets on their fantasy teams based on leaks from Jon Heyman.

I know, my attitude sucks. I’m working on it. Really I am.

Jed Hoyer is selling his house. What does that mean?

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. The powers that be have provided sarcasm font in the comments.

Cubs birthdays: Dad Lytle, Gene DeMontreville, Bill Heath, Joe Campbell, Darcy Fast, Donnie Murphy.

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.
