In Friday’s game, the simCubs defeated the simNationals. Our team prevailed by a score of 5-3 in a game that was competitive until the final pitch. I’m already tired of Howie Kendrick and there are two more games to go until the scheduled day off on 4/20.

There was a lot of action, some uncharacteristic spotty play by Kris Bryant and Javier Baez, and some interesting pitching in the game, which featured a dramatic finish authored by Craig Kimbrel, who wrote himself into a corner and pitched his way out. Here are some of the highlights:

The Cubs and the Nationals play again today at 3 p.m. Central. Yu Darvish will be facing Joe Ross.

Al will have more information about that game in the game post at 2:30 p.m. 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 420!
