Welcome to the weekend you were working for, 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.

Cub Tracks is still on the Nico Hoerner train. We got on last year and have seen no reason to disembark. We are still on the Nick Madrigal train also. Residence in the Frank the Tank car is starting to wane now, a month into a subpar season. Likewise Rafael Ortega. We still see the Wisdom of backing Patrick.

These are all pretty much consensus views at the moment. Everyone would look better with more effective starting pitching. We don’t yet know if the Cubs are dead in the water, but they look leaky. Their fate remains to be seen. As always, we await developments.
