Cubs, Sox Eyeing A Record Season – For Combined Losses

John Danks, Dioner NavarroSaturday’s column from CBS Chicago

(CBS) Over the years, Chicago has seen a lot of bad baseball.

(Have you noticed?)

But it’s been a long time since the city has seen baseball as bad as this on both sides of town.

Heading into Friday’s games, both the Cubs and the White Sox were mired in last place in their respective divisions with near identical records that have them on pace to drop 95 games apiece.

As it stands right now, that projected total of 190 losses puts them within very close striking distance of matching – or topping – the record 191 defeats that the Cubs and Sox combined for way back in 1948.

This ain’t the Golden Age of Chicago baseball, folks.

It’s a sport that the city started playing at the Major League level in 1876, and since then Chicago has endured 41 seasons in which either the Cubs (22 times) or the White Sox (19) have lost at least 90 games.
