Cub Tracks keeps on truckin’

Cubs, simCubs, and MLB news

The simCubs took three out of four from the Reds and welcome the Baltimore Orioles to beautiful simWrigley. Yu Darvish didn’t pitch especially well, nor especially badly, but Brandon Palmer has a quick hook and Ryan Tepera ended up with the victory as Ian Happ delivered a clutch double after Willson Contreras had driven in the game-tying run with a double of his own. Exciting times at the old ballyard as the 2020 simCubs pursue the championship dream.

Lots of highlights!

And the simCubs are all over the leaderboards:

First place in our hearts and first place in the NL Central and the best record in the National League.

Kohl Stewart, winless on the season, will face Kyle Hendricks, whose 7 wins are second on the squad. The Orioles are bad, but they gave the Cubs all they could handle last time around. Don’t enumerate the poulet.

Al will have more 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.
