Grab your coffee! This is necessarily going to be a long one. Lots of tweets and text. Here’s a soundtrack starter!

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 a ton of information available. I tried to distill it as much as possible, and to minimize the crossover with Outside The Confines. I expanded CT’s palette some to have enough content but I suspect we’re in for a glut and I’ll narrow the focus a little. BCB readers are recommended to peruse both listicles as they provide a good picture of the current MLB/MiLB baseball scene, and are the source of a good deal of the news reported on the front page. It takes a lot of legwork to make these articles happen and we thank you for taking the time to read them.

Hey! That said, on with the Show! Carlos Correa and Kris Bryant are trending on the Twitters atm. The others will be more than happy to cover any signings, and we’ll be back with more of this tomorrow.

Another bit of team news, non-player division:

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.

Silly Season is on, too. Always check those sources!

Cubs birthdays: George Moolic, Doc Curley, George Maisel, Mrs. Maisel, Bud Tinning, Johnny Callison, Horacio Pina.

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.
