White Sox-Cubs trivia

I was listening to Dan McNeil on the radio the other day and he was listing players who played for both the Cubs and White Sox. I was only half interested because he went on about how the list contains about 200 or so names. Yes, it does. So it got me tp thinking about creative lists of Cubs-Sox players, the guys on the list who have a unique distinction about their careers. So I decided to list players for the Cubs and White Sox who belong to some special sub group.
