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 Stro’ Show bestrode the bump, in general opposition to Guardians hurler Tanner Bibee. It looked like a mismatch on paper. Marcus Stroman oughta be starting the All-Star Game, and we all know it. Justin Steele should also be on that staff. We’ll find out tonight. Anyway, the game was delayed by weather.

After a nearly three-hour delay, the game finally happened. It was worth the wait if you like low-scoring, tight games. Bibee got a little run support. Both pitchers were dealing.

But... in the top of the sixth, the wheels came off. It was too depressing to talk about. Friday night the Jekyll/Hyde Cubs looked like Spencer Tracy. Saturday they looked like Mark Blankfield.
