Poll No. 3: the cubs and white sox are playoff-bound. are you as fired up as you would be in a more typical 162-game season?
Upshot: It’s nice to see the “absolutelies” prevail in a landslide, isn’t it? The season has been stranger than all get-out, but there’s something about winning that makes it all feel just right. It might even make up for 2008, the last year the Cubs and Sox both made the playoffs, when they went a combined 1-6 in the divisional round against the Dodgers and Rays. ✶
