Cub Tracks’ eight isn’t enough

#Cubs, #MLB, and #MiLB news you can use, four days a week. Jameson Taillon is back, the Cubs’ bats still have good wood in them, and trade talk.

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.

I don’t know about you, but I find it hard to take seriously reports that the Cubs will be in on Ohtani. We’ll see if and when the time comes, but the Magic 8-Ball says “Doubtful.”

It’s trade talk all the way down in this edition.

But first, the GAME.
