Meatloaf! That’s always welcome on my plate. I am presently gruntled with the baseball proceedings, so let’s get right to the news (what there is of it) — as always * means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and Chrome).
Cubs News and Notes:

“In the past, when we’ve won on a high level, we’ve played outstanding defense,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. “It never gets old to watch that kind of baseball. The baserunning, the defense, the throws, all that kind of stuff. The real baseball purist loves that style of game.” — Carrie Muskat.
Lester said after watching @albertalmora make another diving catch in CF…”Ok, I’m done clapping for you now.” It’s just expected that those guys will make great plays.
