Cubs and MLB news — simCubs lose, Fidrych passes, Lester attempts a pickoff, and other stories

Well, our simCubs took it on the chin after playing the woeful Pirates and the visiting Cardinals escaped the Windy City with two victories in three games. The Cubs’ til-then reliable bullpen served up free passes to dirty birds and a gopher ball to Paul DeJong, and it was all over despite a spirited comeback in the ninth, as the tying run ended up on third base.
