So, what does this mean for the Sox? I suppose maybe a Sox/Bulls connection, but do they stay with Comcast? Come up with something else?

I thought I read that the Blackhawks will likely continue their partnership with the Bulls and Sox. The Cubs will be on their own.

Yeah, I'm pretty skeptical of the Blackhawks or any college team joining a Cubs Channel. Seems like a branding conflict if you're not a team named the Cubs.

I would think the wirtz/reinsdorf connection is pretty tight. I would be surprised if the hawks would jump to a cubs channel.

Not necessarily. The Nets also have their games on YES. And McDonough's previous connection to the Cubs makes it a viable possibility IMO.

McDonough is an employee, An agreement to do this would come from the very top.

Brewers win 3-2. One game back.



The Cubs lead is Shrinking

How nice would it be to see Milwaukee and St. Louis leap the Cubs?

I'm all about the last game chaos. I hope half the National league has a shot at a wildcard slot or division winner on the very last game of the season. Makes for great baseball viewing!

If that happens, one of the teams out west likely will too.

The Bad Guys have 3 games left against the Reds and against us. So, six games against bottom feeders. I sure hope those 2 series don't end up being a cake walk for the Flubs. ....though the Brewers have 3 games vs. the Reds, too.

Sully points to two White Sox wins that ultimately help deny the Cubs the division title:

Meanwhile, I suppose the season's over for the Wrigley Rat, too:

Most of the Cub fans I ripped on the last few days quickly want to remind me about the Sox attendance. What is the deal with Cubs Fans and Attendance? Why is it so important to them? I just respond "If that is the kind of championship you want is the attendance champion, then congrats!" or "I better switch alliance ASAP because I want to cheer for whats popular, do you have more room for fans?"
