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.

Matt Shaw is still raking. Pete Crow-Armstrong is in the conversation. The Cubs are going to have to jimmy their rotation — as we’ve seen, it’s bad news about Marcus Stroman.

Javier Assad went Wednesday night. He’s been very good lately. Mike Clevenger provided opposition. Assad pitched well enough to win, had the bats been more cooperative early.

Michael Fulmer had an impressive stint on the hill. Nicky Two Strikes with a basket job to get the Cubs on the board.

And a scoreless ninth for the Sox, thanks to Drew Smyly. Two Cubs get on against Santos, and the Morel equivalent is brought to bear! Yeah, I hollered and jumped up and down. Didn’t you?

*means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and Chrome). {$} means paywall. {$} means limited views. Italics are often used on this page as sarcasm font. The powers that be have enabled sarcasm font in the comments.

Carter Hawkins talks about PCA.
