Cub Tracks wins some, loses some

Read all about it! #Cubs, #MLB, and #MiLB news you can use, four days a week. A drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things, still, the Cubs took it on the chin Saturday. How they respond will be the story.

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.

Well, that didn’t work out so well. Go get ‘em today, Cubs. A series split with L.A. is still very possible, with the marquee matchup of Stroman vs. Kershaw on tap. The Cubs have treated the future Hall-of-Famer roughly in the past and will look to do so again. Still, the Cubs took it on the chin Saturday. How they respond will be the story.

And it’s early yet, but this could maybe be a playoff preview. The Brewers are bound to come back to earth. This might be the real Cubs. Only time will tell.
