Welcome to today’s episode 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.

Cub Tracks continues to defy expectations. Nobody expected me to keep doing this series, but we’re going on our ninth year (next Friday is our anniversary). We don’t think so much inside the box here — mostly we poop in it.

Nice image. Keep that in your mind’s eye and your tongue in your cheek.

Anyway here we are again, having added a third series to our area of responsibility, the 2023-24 Player Profiles (50 so far), which you should visit regularly, along with Baseball history unpacked (856) and of course this Cub Tracks (1,500 or so).

So you’ll probably want something in an air freshener. Now, we take you back to your regularly-scheduled commercial.
