Could Chicago handle a Cubs/White Sox World Series?


With both the White Sox and the Cubs doing quite well in this shortened MLB season, the rumblings on social media have been stirring: Crosstown World Series? Could our city handle that? Would you even be able to tolerate the trash talk on your Facebook feed? It may not happen, but just imagine it. Yeah, it would be wild.

This would be a case of history repeating itself. The 1906 World Series saw the Cubs face the White Sox as a heavily favored team who had the best regular-seasons of any team in baseball history, only to be lost to the Sox in six games. This Wikipedia entry breaks down each game. 

Stark Raving Sports did a fantastic video breaking down all the star players and how the series had an effect on a very different Second City from the past.
