 Chicago sees stories worth following
posted 8 years ago

Neither the Cubs nor the White Sox will bring home baseball's ultimate prize, but they did get the Windy City as fired up this postseason as it has been at any time in recent memory. And here's why it doesn't have to end. Take it from people associated with the local teams. The White Sox, who lost their American League Division Series matchup with the Rays in four games, had to win three consecutive games, at the end of the regular season, in which a loss would have left them out of the playoffs altogether. So they have an appreciation for what it means to beat the odds, and they acknowledge that such a spirit is part of the Rays' appeal. Another former Athletic, White Sox outfielder/first baseman Nick Swisher, suggested that any fans who aren't predisposed to living and dying with their hometown team will have a hard time not jumping onto the Rays' growing bandwagon. "They're just a fun team to watch," Swisher said. "They have great athletes all over the field, they have power and speed, and they can pitch. Plus, they have a manager [Joe Maddon] who's obviously doing a great job, and he has them playing the game the right way. "As a player, you don't want anybody to win but the team you're on. But you can't ignore what they're doing over there. It's impressive."
