Default Comparing this rebuild to the Cubs'

I don't understand why Sox fans have a problem with comparing the rebuild to the one the Cubs embarked on. The way I see it, the parallels are lining up so far. The Cubs were terrible in 2012 and 2013 just like the Sox were the past two seasons. The Cubs started to turn a corner in 2014, but weren't there yet. This year's Sox seem to be headed toward that direction. I say why not make the comparison? It's an example of a successful rebuild that happened right here in our city, and the Sox are following the same timeline. Call me what you want, but I've been comparing our rebuild with the Cubs' timeline practically since Sale was traded. Has anyone else?
