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 playoffs look further away than they did a month ago. High-priced acquisition Jameson Taillon is channeling Edwin Jackson, or maybe Danny Jackson. Maybe even Michael Jackson as he seems to be moving backward and wears a glove on one hand. Will the real Jameson Taillon please stand and deliver? Who’s to say which is right, and which is an illusion?

And which are the real Cubs?
