So We Meet Again...

2004_06_sportscrosstown.jpgFor the second straight weekend, all Chicago baseball fans will be occupied with the crosstown matchup between the Cubs and White Sox -- this time at Wrigley Field. And Chicagoist will be sitting in the box seats on Saturday!

The clubs come into the series each having won their series in between. The Cubs took 2 out of 3 from the fading Houston Astros while the White Sox overtook first place with a 3-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins.

In the spirit of the weekend series, the Sun-Times has published a list of 40 things to know about the Cubs-Sox series.

The Trib gets into the spirit with their lists of Top 25 White Sox and Top 25 Cubs of all time.

The Trib also fuels the fire this weekend by wondering whether Sox slugger Magglio Ordonez, and free agent at season's end, might end up playing for the Cubs next season. Whether or not there's any truth to the rumor makes little difference this weekend...
