The Cubs lost on Tuesday night, and they're now down 3-0 to the Mets in the NLCS. I'm sure that many of you, as White Sox fans, are celebrating this fact. Don't worry, this isn't going to be some lecture on how you shouldn't care about the Cubs.
If you want to hate on them, it's not my style, but do you. I have to say, though, that the Cubs winning could be in your best interest as a White Sox fan.
After the trade was finally announced, my excitement only intensified with the news that Yoan Moncada was finally being called up.
Happy Yoan Moncada Day, by the way.
As for the trade itself, now that I've slept on it and spent a few more hours thinking about it, I suppose my reaction to it is still similar to how I felt last night when it all started breaking.
I'm not surprised that Frazier and Robertson were dealt. That's been expected since the winter. I'm surprised that they were packaged together along with Tommy Kahnle in one deal. I'm also surprised by the return the White Sox got.
White Sox fans have taken a lot of shit over the years. Tune into any typical White Sox home game on television, and you're bound to see plenty of empty seats.
It's led to attendance shaming by both the organization at times, and especially from the media.
You need to be told that you are a Bad Fan. You are not like the Good Fans on the other side of town, who for years forked over a bunch of their personal money to watch the Good Team no matter how shitty they were.
