After a “virtual” off day Monday, the simCubs will have their first interleague game today as they open a two-game series at simCamden Yards against the Baltimore Orioles.

Here are some highlights from Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals:

Here at BCB, we are going to play simulated games for every game on the Cubs‘ 2020 schedule via MLB The Show 20. This will continue until the actual schedule begins, or we get some clarity on what’s actually going to happen with baseball this year.

Here is the complete BCB Mediacenter where all our BCB simulated games will be located. You can watch previous games which are all archived there, but please note: We won’t have the actual link to the live broadcast of today’s specific game until it starts. At that time, Duane will drop the direct link into the comments to this post around 3 p.m CT. Until then you can use the link in this paragraph as a guide to where to find the game. All of our simulated games will begin at 3 p.m. CT.

Here are today’s particulars.

This is Game 17 of the 2020 season, Cubs vs. Orioles at Camden Yards, the first of a two-game series. The Cubs enter today with a 12-4 record. The Orioles are 6-10.

Kyle Hendricks will start for the Cubs. Kohl Stewart will start for the Orioles.

Today’s lineups:

Cubs

Bryant DH, Rizzo 1B, Baez SS, Schwarber LF, Contreras C, Heyward RF, Happ CF, Bote 3B, Kipnis 2B

Orioles

Iglesias SS, Alberto 2B, Mancini RF, Nunez 1B, Smith DH, Santander LF, Hays CF, Urias 3B, Wynns C

There won’t be any traditional-style “recaps” of these games. Duane will post some clips and boxscores in his Cub Tracks and Baseball history unpacked posts the morning after each game, so we can track this simulated season as it unfolds. We’ll post the standings as each day goes by.

A note on the headline here, because I know you’re going to ask: This is a real thread. The game is what is simulated.

Looking to join in on the fun? If so, you can get your own copy of MLB The Show. Here’s where you can order the game.

Enjoy, and discuss amongst yourselves.
