‘Real’ baseball is looming, and soon, the simCubs will take a back seat to the real thing. They will probably continue to win despite a lack of official attention, as they did Saturday afternoon at simWrigley, allowing a mere five hits for a total of eight for the two-day span as sim Jon Lester won his 11th at long last and sim Kris Bryant sealed the deal with a bases-loaded circuit clout.

Today sim Anthony DeSclafani will try to outwit and outpitch the Professor, sim Kyle Hendricks, as the Cubs attempt another broomfest, having already claimed the meatloaf.

Al will have more about the 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.

FYI: SimGames will continue to be played according to the original daily schedule and they will be posted at approximately 9 a.m. NL Central Time. We will continue coverage on these pages, with the simCubs section coming before the Food for Thought section, if and when real game threads commence.

And now, without further ado, 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.
