Cub Tracks’ insert gamethread word here

Four days a week — the latest #Cubs, #MLB, and #MiLB news, all in one tidy package. Maybe a mile high is too high or something. That was an awful series. Play like that against the D-backs and it’s more or less over.

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.

Hooray for early scoring and Pat on the tv. PCA with a second start, more hooray.


But then... I don’t even want to talk about the fifth inning. Cripes.

You just can’t get beat like that by a team like that. Discouraging. 11 runners left on base and 3-for-12 with RISP. Fugly. Wasting Nico Hoerner’s four hits, too. Today’s a day off. Use it for a reset. I had more to say but I lost it in the sun. It’s a 15-game season now.

*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.

Mervis continues to mash.
