Chicago Cubs vs. Miami Marlins simulated game. Tuesday 5/26, 3 p.m. CT

The simCubs come back to Wrigley Field for a six-game homestand to finish up May.

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The simCubs crushed the Brewers 9-0 Sunday, with Jon Lester throwing a five-hit complete game shutout. Willson Contreras and David Bote homered. Here are highlights!

As is our custom here on the first day of each series, we present the standings and league leaders for our MLB 2020 simulation.

A.L. leaders:

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 55 of the 2020 season, Cubs vs. Marlins at Wrigley Field, the first of a three-game series. The Cubs enter today with a 37-17 record. The Marlins are 26-28.

Tyler Chatwood will start for the Cubs. Caleb Smith will start for the Marlins.

Today’s lineups:


Bryant 3B, Rizzo 1B, Baez SS, Contreras C, Bote 2B, Happ RF, Hoerner CF, Schwarber LF, Chatwood P


Rojas SS, Berti CF, Dickerson LF, Aguilar 1B, Cooper 3B, Alfaro C, Diaz 2B, Calhoun RF, Smith 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.
