The simCubs hung on to win Monday’s game at Dodger Stadium, their eighth straight victory. Javier Baez homered in the triumph.

Here are some highlights:

Here are the Cubs results and schedule for May:

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 37 of the 2020 season, Cubs vs. Dodgers at Dodger Stadium, the second of a three-game series. The Cubs enter today with a 26-10 record. The Dodgers are 19-15.

Kyle Hendricks will start for the Cubs. Alex Wood will start for the Dodgers.

Today’s lineups:


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


Turner 3B, Seager SS, Betts RF, Bellinger CF, Muncy 1B, Pederson LF, Lux 2B, Smith C, Wood 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.
