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.

Hayden Wesneski’s debut is much in the news, still. Javier Assad is, too. We have it all right here in black and white. Sadly, it didn’t go the Cubs’ way Wednesday night. Sisyphus got rolled over.

Still, I feel love.

Love is blind.

Glove love.

Cub love.

Rucker and Newcomb had decent outings. They likely won’t be around for 2023. Love means waiting ‘til next year.
