    Cubs and White Soxs to play for trophy

    Beginning this season, the Cubs and White Sox will play for the Crosstown Cup trophy during their six-game interleague series.
    The two clubs announced the new wrinkle on Monday.
    Chicago's two teams will continue to meet in a yearly six-game series as they have since 1997.

    Kind of stupid IMO. I think the only trophies in baseball should be the end of season trophies.

    I agree. This isn't college football. Another dumb thing: they play six games, sooo what happens when they go 3-3? Don't tell me they actually came up with a tiebreaker system either.

    Its probably a simple system like whoever scores the most runs.


    Hooray for Metaphors!

    The managers fight for it. Ozzie is probably faster, but Lou can sit on him.

    If series is tied, winner of last game gets the trophy. It's in the link.

    Which is nearly as lame as the concept itself.
