It’s time for baseball, and Chicago is alive with the crack of the bat and the infectious sound of the organ playing “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”
But while tradition and excitement fill the air, hope certainly does not. The Cubs and the White Sox are two proud teams, but 2013 is not likely to treat either club kindly. Everyone has the same record on Opening Day, but fans in the Windy City could be disappointed when game No. 162 rolls around and their team is barred from October baseball.
