We are only a few short weeks away (July 31, 3:00 pm CT) from one of the most exciting times in regular season baseball: the trade deadline. Unfortunately for Cubs’ fans, this time will likely mean the end of the road for one of your favorite players wearing Cubby blue. For the South siders, you may see a fresh face or two in black and white to help the Sox playoff push.
The White Sox are the only ball club in Chicago right now with a fighting chance to make the postseason this year. The Sox are 44-48 and are surprisingly only five games behind the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central. The Cubs, meanwhile, have been struggling, which has led to them holding the second-worst record in all of baseball at 37-55.
