Welcome to today’s episode of Cub Tracks news and notes™, featuring material from current beat writers, bloggers, and the occasional in-house habitué, moonlighting. These pieces center around #Cubs, #MiLB, and #MLB baseball.

The Cubs played Wednesday afternoon. Al has details in his recap. The Cubs look to be in mid-season form most of the time, everybody in the best shape of their lives and living their absolute best life.

I am also in the best shape of my life: round. Anyway it was a good enough game featuring decent pitching from all of the Cubs’ arms and Seiya Suzuki’s first hit, first home run:

Clint Frazier had fun with the long ball, too.

That team looked pretty much northbound.
