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 46 of the 2020 season, Cubs vs. Padres at Petco Park, the second of a four-game series. The Cubs enter today with a 32-13 record. The Padres are 21-23.

Yu Darvish will start for the Cubs. Zach Davies will start for the Padres.

Today’s lineups:


Rizzo 1B, Bryant 3B, Baez SS, Schwarber LF, Happ CF, Caratini C, Kipnis 2B, Heyward RF, Darvish P


Myers RF, Grisham CF, Pham LF, Tatis SS, Hosmer 1B, Machado 3B, Dozier 2B, Mejia C, Davies P

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.
