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 and attempt to distill the zeitgeist into a potent potable. Please enjoy immoderately.

I can’t stand the Home Run Derby, and won’t be watching. But Patrick Wisdom should be in it. Pujols Schmujols.

Cubs and Mets play two today. Ronnie would be beside himself with fiendish glee. I share the Met disdain. I will never not. I entertain similar feelings about the Padres and Marlins. Those feelings cannot be assuaged.

And it makes things worse when those teams casually flick the Cubbies aside like a stray booger, like the Mutts did the other night. I still watch, because Tom Lehrer and I have this dance we do, but that’s a waste of good suffering.

The Cubs are tied for last in the NL Central with the Cincinnati Reds.
