As a white sox fan who hates the cubs as a typical one, I’d 100% take your season. You have so many items to take forward and be positive about.Chicago baseball fans on both sides of town can ponder a question...
Is it better to be in contention up to the very end -- and then MISS OUT? Like the North Siders could.
Is it better to just have a completely awful year and fall out of contention in May and not even toy with the affections of your fans? Like the South Siders have had to put up with for yet another season of loss and misery.

For me, first time I’ve really just felt indifferent now about the sox, knowing they are looking at a 3-5 year complete rebuild and Robert being the only one who might be there on the other side…and knowing until someone else owns the team it probably doesn’t matter anyway. The last one I was at least immediately excited by the farm system but this just feels like no real path forward.
