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, and cold-brewed overnight for maximum flavor.

Adrian Assad looks more and more like a find. Some offensive support would have been nice. Better selection might help that. Cubs were swinging pretty wildly, especially in the seventh when they had a good chance to score. Might have helped, since Sean Newcomb was coming in, and he has a propensity for adding to the score. He’ll be somewhere else next year.

That was fugly.
