Looks like Javy’s gone bats. Nice. About time. Maybe there are signs that the offense as a whole is getting untracked. Maybe. That would be nice, too.

Oh hey! A hit with the bags jammed, too. And let’s not forget David Bote’s bat, or Alec Mills’ decent pitching.

SimCubs news:

Current standings and league leaders. SimTrout is at 9.9 WAR on the season.

No game Monday. Today the 90-41 simCubs take on the 53-78 simMarlins in the first of a three-game series in Miami. Ryan Yarbrough (14-4, 3.19) will try to win his fifteenth against Jordan Yamamoto (7-9, 4.28). Javy has the day off — Greg Jones is going to spell him today. Rizzo and Willie are still shaking off the icicles but are back in there.

All game video and related material is available commercial-free, 24/7, at the BCB Media Center.
