Cub Tracks’ second-half acre

The latest installment of our long-running series of #Cubs, #MLB, and #MiLB news articles. It’s a wise acre.

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.

Cub Tracks (and canine/feline associates) will once again represent against pitch clocks and other artificial constraints. We don’t think the game is too long. Like in a well-constructed tune, the spaces in between the notes are key. You may disagree. Either way, it’s only opinion. Mine smells good to me.

Jed Hoyer sold his house. What should we read into that? Is there scrying in baseball?
