Didn't JR say something about being "Chicago's American League team" when he accepted the WS trophy? I guess it has been awhile though.
I'm afraid the Sox have blown a golden opportunity to increase their market share in Chicago. Everyone knew the Cubs would be terrible for at least several years starting in 2012. The Sox should have been aggressive about assembling a playoff-level team during this time period and capturing the baseball interest in the area.
