Oh hey there, optimism. Good to see you on the North and South sides of the city at this time of year. It’s been a while since we’ve seen you anywhere other than the United Center as Spring rolls around.
But listen, buddy. As good at it is to see you, I have to tell you something: can you maybe ease up a little bit? Look, it’s clear that you’re here because both the Cubs and the White Sox made drastic improvements up and down their rosters. But now you’ve got Chicago baseball fans puff out their chest and yelling “World Series or bust!”
You can do funny things to a fan, optimism. I’m here to take you down a peg.
