It’s a fucking great time to be a Chicago baseball fan. With less than 10 games left in the season, Chicago is the home of two first-place teams in the respective divisions. The White Sox have already clinched their spot in the playoffs while the Cubs are soon to follow. Both clubs own one of the only two no-hitters thrown in MLB. The probable AL MVP, Batting Champ, and Rookie of the Year are on the South Side while the possible NL Cy Young and Comeback Player of the Year reside just 8 miles north.
