Yesterday, we looked at both New York baseball teams, the Yankees and the Mets, and we asked the readers who they thought would make the playoffs.
Today, we are going to ask a similar question, these two teams are from the same state and are both in first in their respective leagues. That’s right, the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox. The Cubs have the second best record, 50-34, in the majors only to the Rays. Meanwhile, the Chicago White Sox have a 48-35 record.
The Cubs have a very good offense overall led by a fearful hitter, Alfonso Soriano, Derek Lee, Kosuke Fukudome, Aramis Ramirez, Ryan Theriot, and Mark DeRosa among others. Their pitching staff ain’t too shabby either with Carlos Zambrano, Ryan Dempster, and Ted Lilly.
Chicago White Sox have a pretty good offense also, such as Jermaine Dye, and Carlos Quentin. Also, their pitching staff is pretty good, led by Mark Buehrle, Jose Contreras, Danks, and Gavin Floyd.
All in all, both of these have been very dominant in their respective leagues, and it will be interesting to see how they fare in the second half of the season.
