Of course it should be noted that the White Sox could find themselves in the playoffs as well. This is pending their one game playoff against the Minnesota Twins. The Sox struggled late in the season and couldn't hold their lead in the AL Central. And neither could the Twins apparently.
A noontime rally will be held today for the Cubs at Daley Plaza in advance of the team's first playoff game Wednesday against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Baseball Hall of Famer Billy Williams, WGN Radio's Ron Santo, Mayor Richard Daley, Gov. Rod Blagojevich and actor Jim Belushi are expected to be among the attending luminaries. Belushi will emcee.
The event is free and open to the public, and will run from noon to 12:45 p.m.
