Baseball history unpacked, May 27 (Bleed Cubbie Blue)

The simCubs lost 2-1 to the Marlins, who hit two solo homers for their scores. David Bote singled and TOOTBLAN’d for the Cubs’ run.

There really aren’t many highlights, so I’m going to skip those. Today’s game features Pablo Lopez versus Yu Darvish. The Cubs need to win to preserve the meat loaf possibilities.

Al will have more about that in the game post Tuesday (at 2:30 p.m. CT, for our 3 p.m. start), as Monday is an off day. 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*.
