Cub Tracks’ conventional wisdom

All the #Cubs, #MLB, and #MiLB news you can use, four days a week. Things will be quiet until the Convention, I guess.

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

The rumor mill has people wondering about how nice Matt Chapman would look in a Cubs’ uniform. And of course he would, but I don’t see a matchup. Maybe you do. It isn’t like Toronto is just going to give him away — that only happens to the Cardinals. He’s probably about to sign a long-term extension.

There’s not much of substance about. It’s that time of year. Perhaps we’ll get another splash before the Cubs Convention starts. Perhaps not.
