If you are saying the Cubs would rather have it as a summer weekend series, wouldn't those be dates that the Cubs have a huge crowd regardless of who they host? Maybe they'd rather have the Sox on a early season week day because that's when they've been getting smaller crowds of late (20,000 at a game last week).



I know i'll get flamed for saying this, but having the Cubs-Sox Series over with by May 8 next year is perfectly fine with me.



Now that the Cubs-Sox series has gone to a 2+2 format, I wonder if weekday games for the series are here to stay. Baseball's scheduling format doesn't provide for a 2 game weekend series.....unless they were able to lump in the battle for the BP Cup as a single Thurs-Sunday 4 game series.
No flame from me. If that series went away forever and never came back, it would not be missed. Stale and boring.
