It’s May 15th and both of Chicago’s baseball teams are sitting dead last in their respective divisions. The Cubs have been so bad over the past 2 seasons that after winning 5 out of their last 10 games seems like a hot streak.
On the other side of town, the White Sox aren’t sure what’s worse. It might be their lethargic offense that can’t get on base or hit for that matter. Or maybe it’s a defense that at times can’t make the routine throw to first base.
Both sides of towns’ fan bases should be angrier than hell. This is the number 3 market in this country and neither sides of town are acting like the big market clubs they are.
Cub’s fans should really be the angriest, on the simple reason they haven’t won a world series in 104 years and counting. When the feel good story of the summer is the contract extension to Anthony Rizzo and that really tells us where this season is headed on the north-side of town.
Now that we’re just a week and a half away from Memorial Day, I think White Sox fans are starting to come to the realization that the rest of the American League Central is just better than their White Sox.
Now take in consideration that this will now be the 6th consecutive year that attendance has dropped at U.S. Cellular Field, and you can start to see where this franchise might be headed sooner rather than later.
After years of former GM Kenny Williams trading away prospects for veterans with the motto of let’s win now, has left the White Sox farm system baron of talent.
