I know I'll get flamed for this, but it wouldn't surprise me at all if the Cubs make the playoffs before the Sox.
You think you'll get flamed? If Ricketts and Theo are successful then the Sox might as well leave town. If the Cubs actually do ever win anything, even a pennant, the whole sports world, especially the media will do endless summersaults. Their fans will act like the Cubs have become the Yankees, Boston fans will be nothing compared to it.
