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.

The Cubs won’t be getting Aaron Nola. That much is clear. I dunno if they were in on Lance Lynn. Probably not. Likewise Reynaldo Lopez.

I’ll say nothing more about pitch clocks or Rob Manfred or questionable anatomical feats here. I am also now and always have been in favor of situational lefties and the one-batter rule.

So that’s the news! Good morning!

Oh wait.
