"Official" White Sox/Cubs Baseball Thread
 
I felt the need to make a thread for baseball because both our teams are doing well this year and I would love to talk some smack. Cubs suck!!! :rofl: Let the arguments begin! :jg:

guspech750 07-29-2015 08:40 PM

I miss 2005. :(

Crosstown classic. Good guy winners wear black

dberz94 07-29-2015 08:54 PM

Were making a good run so far. 5th -> 3rd place. Go sox!

Got a double or nothing bet with my cousin that the Sox will have a better record than the Cubs. Wasn't looking good up until now.

Turk 07-30-2015 07:58 AM

Sox are absolutely on fire right now. Problem is, they've had a few streaks this year and have followed them up with a really bad stretch.

Turk 07-30-2015 08:14 AM

And of course sox vs cubs tickets went way up. Dammit.

TonzKnock-G 07-30-2015 10:00 AM

I guess we will see with the Yankee's, Tampa and KC up next.

But they were never scoring this amount of runs per game. The pitching has always been there. If they hit like they're supposed to, not even as good as they have been on this stretch, they'll be in good shape for the 2nd wildcard.

people still watch baseball??

Let's not forgot the SUX have played Cleveland and Boston last 2 series. Let's see what they do in the next 2 weeks.

A lot of people. Baseball draws 4 times as many people as hockey or basketball.

There's more teams in baseball also. And being Americas past time doesn't hurt either.

I like be at the game. I'll watch the playoffs but not just a regular season game very often.

I'm talking per team.

Turk 07-30-2015 05:15 PM

To put it into perspective, the White Sox who don't draw very well draw more people per game than the Blackhawks, and play twice as many games and share the city with the Cubs. I always find it funny when people say, "People watch baseball?!?" Yeah, shit loads of them. It's pretty damn hard to draw 20k+ people 81 times a year, no other sport would be able to do it.

Its the classic white sox math. Win 7 games = Lose 6/7. We should finish above .500 though

Remember when the cubs almost lost to the ROCKIES TWICE and did lose to them once without having Troy Tulowitzki

You think maybe the capacity of their respective stadiums might have something do with that? If the UC fit 100K people, there would be 100K people there every game.

Just look at the attendance at the Cup parades Vs. the White Sox WS parade.... The Hawks fan base dwarfs the White Sox fan base.

Well the sox parade in 2005 was waaayyy before social media was a thing and I viewed the Hawks parade as a mass social media event because if you went you just had to tell all your friends about how you were there. Back in the day the only way you could get the information about the parade was through paper or the news. And also the hawks parade was so massive was because they won 3 stanley cups ina five year period. If the sox won 3 world series in a five year period it would be just the same.

I was talking about the first parade. The Hawks parade in 2010 was all over the news. You didn't need social media to know it was going on. The Sox will never have the fan base that the Hawks do because less than half of Chicago baseball fans are Sox fans.
