Cub Tracks can’t wait

All the #Cubs, #MLB, and #MiLB news you can use, four days a week. We beat the bushes for wisdom and are no wiser than before.

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.

Cole Hamels and Derek Holland have thrown for scouts, it is said, in these waning days of the season’s denouement. Jon Heyman is said to have been the first to report, on Twitter. Neither are expected to be anywhere near the Cubs’ roster but perhaps they are not quite pasturized yet. Former Cub Robert Stock is now a Brewer.

Baseball is coming soon.
