Why is it whenever a Simuldub is synchronous with Simulcast, it never lasts the full run?...

What's that baseball anime in the tweet?
American shows are filmed and ready in advance prior to the season starting.
Japanese anime on the other hand is done pretty much on the spot with an episode often being completed within the same week it's scheduled to air. As such anime studios often fail to meet deadlines on having episodes ready.
When this happens, they air a quickly thrown together "recap" episode for the week allowing them an extra week to work on things and get back on ahead of schedule.
Much in the same way, these studios don't always have the material ready to hand over to the dubbing studios in enough time for same-day Simuldub every week, hence the delays.
