  • Official Cubs/Sox Rivalry Thread

    This is another thread like all the ones in Current Events. Anything goes in this thread as long as you obey the rules of BBF. Enjoy

    Is it possible for one of the Mods to put this in both threads?

    Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!

        Well I for one think if we have the same topic going in 3 places, Current Events, Cubs Forum and Sox Forum, you lose impact of a good debate, because you will have to either read all 3 and reply to all three, which is pointless, or ignore 2 of them and debate in one thread... but your point might not be heard because everyone else might be debating in the other thread.


        I say do not duplicate the same topic, Current Events is the host of that thread, and let's all go to that one thread to debate this topic.

            Couldn't this be better put in the Bitter Rivals Thread?

            That thread can be used for all rivalries.

                  I don't remember. Probably because the Red Sox/Yankees discussion in that thread overshadowed everything else.

                    You probably don't remember because it's been 7 years.

And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country."--Jim Caple, ESPN (Jan. 12, 2011)

                      Quite true, though I have a pretty good memory for the most part and I remember hating the Bitter Rivals thread. Many of the posts weren't even on topic.

                        So am I one of the only Cubs fans that doesn't consider the Sox to really be a rival? I mean, they played, at most, 6 times a season, and now it's down to 4. Their standings mean nothing to each other. They just happen to play in the same city. I get more pumped up for games against the Pirates, to be honest. It has nothing to do with the White Sox themselves, and yes, I am a Chicagoan, but I just don't see it.

                          I agree. It's not a typical rivalry but it does still exist. These teams do not like each other and it shows on the field. Perhaps the Sox are bitter over being Chicago's second team?
