Chicago Baseball Season Preview Spring Training always sneaks up on us. Football season just ended, The Olympics are on center stage, and it’s been one miserable winter.

The bad news is that once again, the Cubs and the Sox will most likely be out of it by June. Here are some tunes and story lines to get you ready for this season.
