Oh, halp! These simCubs are DIALED IN and operating on all cylinders, having taken the first of three from the simCardinals on this mini-homestand. With ONE HIT!

After the game, Yairo Munoz and his bat and glove were packed off to the Red Sox, an A ball shortstop was packed off to the Cards, and the Cubs have 89 men in their organ-i-zation, Bob Pulford. We don’t need to fill that hole right now.

Eight in a row, 12-2 overall. Not much to complain about. Well, except that the simCubs only mustered one hit, and it’s reasonably easy for the others to catch up if they keep doing that kind of thing. Let’s hope they have more than that on the ball today in the rubber game of the series.

Al will have more information about that game in the game post, at 2:30 pm CT, for our 3 p.m. start. I’ll drop the specific URL to the contest in the game thread, but you can lurk at the BCB Media Center and catch it there as well. All past games and highlights reels are available there too, if you want the full #simCubs experience.

And now, here’s Cub Tracks News and Notes, the only links column that really matters. As always, * means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and Chrome). {$} means paywall. {$} means limited views. Italics are often used here as sarcasm font.

Food for thought:

Thanks for reading. Happy 4/20. Rants and raves at medium.
