Welcome to today’s edition 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.

On what I would call a ‘properly managed club’ we wouldn’t be seeing most of these kids. They’d be in Triple-A or even Double-A. But right now they’re the most fun we are allowed to have. They played quite a bit Monday, and all of them looked decent. A couple look better than that. At least they don’t bring pool noodles to the plate like Andrelton Simmons does.

Game two:

However fun, this is not a truly competitive team, if you base your logic on their abysmal won/loss record and tendency to lose by one run. It’s sad that we’ve come to this.
