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.

Shoulda walked Pujols. I was flabbergasted when they didn’t. Am still bemused by the decision to pitch to him. There may be no scrying in baseball but my gut said ‘don’t do it.’

Ah well. What’s a sweep at the hands of your most hated rival, right? Just a small thing. The Cubs should be happy to face the Reds for a set. I mean, they’re 56-46 since 2016. 6-4 this year. That means they have a chance.
