Welcome to today’s edition of Cub Tracks news and notes™, a greatest-hits from Chicago-style beat writers and bloggers, ground from #Cubs, #MiLB, and #MLB baseball, overheated, and then cold-brewed overnight for maximum flavor.

No game Monday. Today the Cubs meet the Phillies, with a chance to dampen their gonfalon hopes. Spite is a good motivator.

Not a hail of bullets but some well-chosen shots anyway.
