Cub Tracks’ deputy saith not

Typically acerbic #Cubs, #MLB, and #MiLB news and notes, links and discussion, plus scientific food for thought. Anything can happen, anytime. So why doesn’t it? Carter Hawkins says a few syllables, and other stories.

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. Dave’s probably here. Thanks for coming.

The big news, of course, is Ryne Sandberg’s prostate cancer, but that has its own page here so I needn’t dig into it.

Secondarily , by now we’re all resigned, more or less, to this offseason trudging across the tundra while the staring contest between Scott Boras and his cadre of potential precedent-setting deals and the holders of player contracts continues.

Players should be commencing team activities or at least thinking about it, not trying to decide where they’re going to live, where the kids are going to school, etc. Freee Agency is unlikely to drag out into Spring Training, but with a market like this, who knows?

... as always, something something developments.
