The White Sox beat the Cubs earlier today, 3-1. That means the White Sox hold the all-time advantage with 58 wins to the Cubs 51. And if the other three games are anything like the past two years, we'll get a clean 2-2 split. Doesn't make for entertaining podcasting between Paul and I...
The Cubs and White Sox rivalry can feel a little forced at times (#crosstowncup), but there have been some great on-field moments. Here are my top five.

Baseball is here! And more importantly, that means the over/under game is back. It seems as though everyone is an expert this time of year. Somehow we convince ourselves that we are better at predicting baseball outcomes than everyone else. Well, AFITB is putting that to the test for the third year in a row. Think you know more about baseball than us? You probably do. But go ahead and prove it anyway.
Baseball is simply the best.
Can the playoffs get even better? Yes, if you play this game with us.
