Monday was an off-day for the real Cubs™ and the simCubs™ rolled on. That gave us all another day to bask in Alec Mills’ triumph.

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.


The simCubs won their fifth in a row and 103rd of the season. Yu Darvish an the bullpen allowed one second-inning run while the Cubs swatted doubles all over the yard and Jason Kipnis accounted for all the runs they would need with a fifth-inning long ball. The game ended up not being close as those doubles piled up.

With just 12 games left, the simCubs can’t equal the all-time wins record. But they can come close. The Cubs and Pirates will try again today. Ryan Yarbrough will face Joe Musgrove. Game time is 3 p.m. CT unless otherwise noted. All game video and related material is available commercial-free, 24/7, at the BCB Media Center.
