    Cubs vs. Whitesox

    Who is everyone rooting for and how do you think the series will turn out?

    I'm a Cubs fan, but with how crappy the bats have been for the Cubbies I wouldn't be surprised to see them lose 2 of 3, and the one game they win, they win 1-0 or 2-1.

    What are everyone's thoughts?

    Cubs break out of their slump and sweep the series.

    Re: Cubs vs. Whitesox

    The way both teams are playing, I can see three 0-0 ties happening. How can this happen you may ask? Bud Selig will issue a suspension of play, realizing that the stake of fandom is in peril due to the horrendous on-field product that these two "teams" are providing, and instead of subjecting fans to watch this garbarge, he'll do the right thing and allow these clubs to move on with at least some shread of dignity.

    ...either that or a Cubs sweep.

    Re: Cubs vs. Whitesox

    I agree this series will be low scoring. I predict the Sox having one of their scoring explosion games winning 8-1. But I see the Cubs winning 2 of 3 if I am being honest.

    Re: Cubs vs. Whitesox

    Agreed with all. Neither team is playing well. This could be really fun to watch or some really ugly baseball.
    As always I'll be pulling for the Cubs.
    clone26 I hope you're wrong about that scoring explosion, I just put some coin on the under

    Am I the only South Side fan here? Good grief. When I think of the Cubs, I think of the hawkeyes.

    The ChiSox are much more arrogant than the Cubs. In the grand scheme of things I could care less about each team, but Cubs fans are typically a lot more laid back and friendly.

    Re: Cubs vs. Whitesox

    I think if the Cubs embarass themselves this week at home against their cross town rival, it will really push management to make some drastic changes or trades. I think this is a really big week for the Cubs.
