Welcome to your Sunday, and 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 continued their lamentable recent trend of starting out badly as a miscue by Patrick became a crooked number. Yan Gomes did take Eric Lauer deep, but the Cubs are hard to watch right now. The Brewers are on fire.

We knew this was going to be a tough stretch. Let’s get all of the bad plays out of the way now. Maybe someone can sage Wrigley Field as a symbolic gesture. Or perhaps Spring Training should be on Summerisle, eh, Sgt. Howie?

Let’s hope the Cubs can salvage the finale.
