The geniuses at MasterCard have overlooked the fact that the city of Chicago actually has two MLB teams. They are even advertising their "Cubs Pledge" promotion on the Sox's flagship radio station 670 The Score.
So what will you do to enter this contest and take the Cubs Pledge?
I am going to make a video of me in my Sox garb and one of my kids in their Cubs "L" shirt booing while I cut up my MasterCard.
Although I'm not a huge proponet of Accuscore (or Yahoo sports), I thought it was interesting that after the 11 game winning streak, they still have us at only a 17% chance to get in the playoffs. I think we're going to need AL wins, cheifly in the Central, to get any sort of real playoff percentage. Oh, being in 1st place might help too.
