Forgive me, Padres, for I have simmed.

The simPadres have been anything but simpatico so far and starting pitcher Joey Lucchesi even went so far as to flirt with a no-no for 6+ innings before Willson Contreras had enough of that winking and nodding and whacked a si-si into the left-field stands. Here are some of the highlights and lowlights from that game:

Forgive my French, but that was fugly. Today the still-in-first-place Cubs try to salvage the dessert course as the entree has already been claimed. Then the Phightin Phillies come into simtown for a weekend series in the Friendly Confines, and brother, I’d love to see them leave with a couple of losses under their belts.

But first, Garrett Richards and the San Diego Padres will oppose Tyler Chatwood and the hometown Chicago Cubs. Please feel fRee to join us at simWrigley Field for the series finale.

Al will have more information about the upcoming sim 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.
