Cub Tracks is shaping up

All the #Cubs, #MLB, and #MiLB news you can use, four days a week. Take a load off. Take a load for free. Put the weight on me.

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.

Happy belated birthday to Dansby Swanson. Cub Tracks, it is known, is also in the best shape of its life — Round. I am so round I could sing Judith. It takes a lot of work to get this way.

Seiya Suzuki has also been working on it (see below). First dedicated camp activity will be Wednesday.

Real games will be coming soon.
