mark prior cubs

... on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, Bleed Cubbie Blue brings a you a lighthearted Cubs-centric look at baseball’s past. Here’s a handy Cubs timeline, to help you follow along as we review select scenes from the rich tapestry of Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball history*.

Today in baseball history:

  • 1906- The White Sox, known as baseball’s ‘hitless wonders,’ complete their unbelievable World Series upset of their powerful crosstown rivals, beating the Cubs, 8-3, at South Side Park. The Cubs had won a record 116 regular-season games. The losers’ share of $439.50 for the Cubs is the lowest ever. (1,2)

SimNews:

The simCubs fell to the simDodgers in a heartbreaker as Craig Kimbrel coughed up the lead and Ryan Tepera gave up the winning run after Simbrel had loaded the bases with nobody out in the bottom of the ninth. Tepera got Justin Turner and Mookie Betts out but Cody Bellinger dumped a double to left against the shift and that was all she wrote.

Yu Darvish and Kwang-Hyun Kim duel at 11 a.m. CT Thursday at Chavez Ravine. The Dodgers lead the NLCS 3-1. Hopefully there’s more baseball after that. All game video and related material is available commercial-free, 24/7, at the BCB Media Center.
