I can't imagine that the Sox or Cubs are happy about the dates for the crosstown series this year. This is by far the earliest it has ever taken place. Both teams are going to be coming off last place seasons, the games take place mid week, the weather will likely be chilly, and kids are still in school. I think attendance for this series is going to fall lower still in 2014. These games should be played on a weekend in June or July like they used to.
