As much as I like the idea of Chicago being part of baseball’s Opening Day festivities, the notion of MLB scheduling a later home start for both the Cubs and White Sox each year definitely does have its appeal.
Chris Sale outpitched James Shields, Tyler Flowers homered and the Chicago White Sox beat the Kansas City Royals 1-0 in the season opener on Monday.
I’ll spare you my opening-day gush of excitement.
With hours to spare, the Cubs officially set their 25-man roster for Opening Day.
Here are three reasons each to love and hate the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs respectively in 2013.
September is a problematic month in which to play bad baseball.
The Chicago White Sox announced six roster moves and set their Opening Day Roster after their game against the Milwaukee Brewers.
This is the first day for the Chicago Park District’s outdoor pools, and while most of them are open, a dozen are still under construction.

This could have been a pretty special Opening Day for Ryan Dempster.
It looks like Bryan LaHair won’t get to make his first opening day start after all.

When Cubs chairman Tom Ricketts shocked the baseball world and snatched Theo Epstein from Boston, he made it very clear his team was committed to winning.
No matter how you feel about the Cubs, Opening Day at Wrigley Field is special. Even though the Cubs lost to the Nationals, Thursday was no exception.
The Cubs completely revamped their entire organization when they brought in team president Theo Epstein, general manager Jed Hoyer and manager Dale Sveum.
Hope and possibility are just a matter of time, at least for Chicago baseball.
Anyone who’s ever been to Wrigley Field knows you can’t buy anything inside the Friendly Confines for $2.
Ryan Dempster, 10-14 with a 4.80 ERA last season in 34 starts, got the nod Friday from manager Dave Sveum over Matt Garza.
