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.
