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.

Goodbye, Eric. See you in a week, Cody. Hello, Mike. Cream and sugar for your coffee? Edwin? Ok then. Not sure whether this roster is a liquid or a gas. It certainly isn’t solid.

Cubs tried to right the good ship Cub once again. The Stro’ Show opposes the winless Ranger Suarez. On paper, the Cubs have the edge.

Suarez went southbound in the second as the Cubs plated a crooked number, but he recovered enough to strike out the side. 66 pitches in two innings is a lot of pitches, though.

The hits just kept on coming. The Stro must go on.

Let’s do it again today!
