What first place team in major league baseball has the biggest lead in their division? White Sox! What team has the best record in baseball? Cubs. (Of course 1908 was the last time it was this late in the season that the Cubs had this distinction.) It seems like this might be a special year…maybe even a special October? Did you know that it has been 35 years since both the White Sox and the Cubs were in first place after June 1st?
I know all this ridiculous optimism could make me sound like a naive Cub fan. But I like living on the edge, so let me be the first to predict: The White Sox in 5 games in an all Chicago World Series!
