Cub Tracks’ fruitless Friday?

All the #Cubs, #MLB, and #MiLB news you can use, four days a week. Well, no Apple, but a victory nonetheless. Cubs get to .500 with their Friday win.

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.

Marcus Stroman and the Cubs were impressive again and defeated the Texas Rangers 2-0. The game was telecast on Apple TV+, and let’s just say that I’m not a fan of this move.

Stroman, though, I’m a fan. He walks it and talks it, and that’s all right by me. Got into a little trouble, pitched out of it. Mark Leiter Jr. and Michael Fulmer pitched well, and the Cubs have evened their record at 3-3. Al has the details.
