It sure is easier on the ears and the mind to watch and listen to Len and JD instead of a bunch of ESPN talking heads. That was disappointingly bad. Not that Marquee’s telecast as seen on MLB.TV was great ... the commercial breaks need work. But after ESPN and Matty V, it was musical.

I dislike the part about the White Sox scoring so many runs early, though. Hopefully the Cubs’ time will come. Yu Darvish looked a little off. Maybe it’s his grip.

RIP, Chris.

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.

SimNews: Monday, July 20 games. The simCubs were thoroughly pummeled by the simWhite Sox 8-2. Nico Hoerner’s ninth-inning two-run blast was the only Cubs highlight, and a hiccup with the game ate that.

We have one more live stream before the real Cubs start, this afternoon. 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.

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 each gameday, starting Thursday with the four-game set against the Cardinals.

Should the actual MLB season be curtailed, we will resume livestreaming.

Thanks for reading.
