Cubs, simCubs, and MLB news

Happy birthday, MIlt Pappas!

The simCubs failed to take all three games against the Nationals and Mom had to settle for meat loaf. She was not pleased.

It was a good game but it ended up wrong. Some of the games plays were flat-out weird, like there being men on first and second after a drive off the wall with a man on. That was so wrong that it started raining here. Almost as wrong as Brandon Palmer’s lineup yesterday, which he refused to defend when asked.

Today at Wrigley, Freddy Peralta (1-1, 6.35) and the Brewers will face Kyle Hendricks (6-0, 1.82) and the Cubs. Al will have more information about the game in the game post at 2:30 pm CT, Tuesday, 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.

... on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, Bleed Cubbie Blue brings a you a lighthearted Cubs-centric look at baseball’s past. Here’s a handy Cubs timeline, to help you follow along as we review hand-picked scenes from the rich tapestry of Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball history*.
