The 12-4 simCubs will face the 6-10 simOrioles in the first game of a series today at 1 pm NL Central. Kyle Hendricks will pitch against Kohl Stewart.

simHendricks is having a splendid year so far and the Cubs aren’t doing so badly despite a series loss to the hated Cardinals. The Orioles are in last place in the AL East. Their pitching is not bad but they don’t score much. So expect a slugfest?

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.
