It’s been a lousy summer for baseball fans here in Chicago. Of course, the Stanley Cup was won a few weeks ago, and some people around here would make that trade any day of the week. And having two sports teams doing well at the same time seems like a pipe dream, so the lack of baseball success doesn’t bother some people at all.

The piece appeared on ChicagoSideSports today, and I’ll be keeping track of how many total losses there are as the season winds down. It could be the only drama that we’ll see in this city, as far as baseball is concerned.
