New Cubs. And today there’s a game. Good times.

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.

Kris Bryant should be back with the Cubs “fairly soon” according to GM Jed Hoyer. Though Hoyer would only say it’s “not out of the picture” for Bryant and/or Steven Souza Jr. to return by Tuesday, sources have indicated that the former MVP should be back in the lineup when the Cubs open their series with the Pirates ... — Evan Altman.

SimNews:

SimKyle Hendricks was successful in his quest for a 16th victory as the simCubs scored often enough to defeat the visiting simGiants, Craig SimKimbrel notched another save and the team is tending upward after a bad homestand and worse road trip. SimJon Lester faces SimDrew Smyly in today’s contest, which will run when the gods of simbaseball deem it to be possible. Notice will come up on my Twitter account three minutes before the game starts. Otherwise, all game video and related material is available commercial-free, 24/7, at the BCB Media Center.

Food for Thought:

Thanks for reading.
