Rich, I always held you and this site as classy and decent. This is disgusting. You had young Kevin nearly in tears, fearful of posting anything about last weekend’s good weekend for the Cubs. Now this? I am happy for both teams, they are in first place and the Sox needed this series more as the Twins are hot and right behind them.
AS for the home-away, that is a theme across MLB. A Chicago W/S means more money for the city/area.
Rich, keep this up and I will have Kevin file a lawsuit that you make it an unsafe enviornment. Also, I will lead a en masse migration to the Huffington Site once it is set up

I do have to give Sweet Lou props for getting thrown out last night. Its been awhile since I saw a good managerial screaming and yelling session. While it was no Cito Gaston, it was still enjoyable.
I attended games at both parks and realize that there are many idiots out there are both sides. Did you know the all time series was tied before last nights’ game? You can’t beat fun at the old ballpark!
Hey Reed Johnson Feedbag, is that really the best you have? Is that all you can come up with? Even the real Cub fans get embarrassed by that kind of statement. If you can’t argue baseball then just don’t argue. The whole “we out draw the Sox so we are better” thing was never a good response. Certainly never a clever one. But since 2005 it really became sad and pathetic.
I always get paranoid when I read these threads. Replace the names according to some “secret code” hidden in the day’s sports pages and you could be talking about current events in Illinois politics. lol
Things will be different after Mark Cuban buys the Cubs…but only then.
I’ve been a Sox fan since the days when the Chicago Cardinals wintered at old Comiskey Park Until this week their batting averages were in the toilet and even Caros Quentin’s was falling off the table. Pirate an Cub pitching were just the ticket.
But Ive got to say that the Pinella acquisition has rejuvenated the Cubbies. They are not going to fade. No August swoon and the old “September salary drive.” They still need another first line pitcher to get to the WS.
My Sox will make it too, provided that the closer stays as lucky as he was yesterday.
As long as Floyd and Danks keep pitching how they are, I don’t see the Sox slipping. The Twins were just beating up on the wors team in baseball (Padres) and another weak NL Central team (Brewers) I think the Sox will be able to hold them off. The Cubs have som issues with their pitching, most notably Zambrano’s health and Dempster’s road woes. Lilly, Marquis, and whoever else pitches for them aren’t that good and everyone knows that. If any team is going to falter in the 2nd half, the logical choice would be the Cubbies!
