Chicago’s baseball team’s couldn’t be much further apart from each other than what was demonstrated in 2015. Physically, they aren’t that far from each other (you could take the Chicago’s L system to either), but they are two different teams in many other aspects — including production.

In 2015, the Cubs were the hottest team in baseball with the MLB’s best, most renowned story. The White Sox were perhaps the most disappointing team with as much reason to succeed as any in the American League.

This offseason, the Sox will look to add infield help and a number of other additions. The Cubs, on the other hand, need help with their pitching rotation. As often as these in-city rivals have been pitted against each other, their needs may have these teams cooperating with one another.
