You know what sucks? Living in Chicago and cheering for the best team in the American League. The Sox are easily baseball's bro-iest team and will only be liked by the small contingent of baseball fans that cheer for the Sox-they are not a national brand like the Cubs. They have the best pitcher in the AL, hell probably the best pitcher in baseball not named Kershaw or Arietta. They have a defense that is suddenly impenetrable, they are finally getting on base and just starting to hit. I'm really psyched about seeing Frazier and Abreu in the US Cellular launching pad when the weather warms up.
Despite all of this, they are getting the spotlight stolen from them, and deservedly, by a Cubs team that might be the most likeable bunch in sports. I'm not an Anti Cubs guy, I'm all for their success. They are fun to watch and listen too and are going to drive teams insane with their ability to stretch starters pitch counts. This is so strange to me that the Sox are baseball's second best team and can't even get a look in their own city because the best team in baseball is so damned good and plays slightly north of them.
