Today’s the simAll-Star Game. Yesterday was the Home Run Derby, which was won by our very own Anthony Rizzo.

Today, Rizzo stands a chance to be in the game, though Freddie Freeman is likely to start as the top vote-getter. Javier Baez and Ian Happ are starting — Willson Contreras looks to have been beaten out by Omar Narvaez, who is having a terrific season. Kyle Hendricks, Dan Winkler, and Craig Kimbrel are also likely to appear on the roster if not in the game. Max Scherzer and Chris Sale are likely to start. The game doesn’t give the rosters, which is mad, so we’re winging it from the final vote.

Al will have more about that game in the game post at 2:30 p.m. CT, after which I’ll post the actual URL to the stream at 3 p.m. CT. Or you can catch the game at the BCB Media Center and also catch past games and game videos, if you want the full #simCubs experience. I uploaded a ton of player data if you’re looking to take a deep dive.

And now, here’s Cub Tracks News and Notes. As always, * means autoplay on, or annoying ads, or both (directions to remove for Firefox and Chrome). {$} means paywall. {$} means limited views. Italics are often used here as sarcasm font.
