The Chicago White Sox and the Chicago Cubs will face off in a four game series in the Crosstwon rivalry this week.

Ricky Widmer and Mark Weber talk about the Crosstown rivalry and what expect from each team this week. They also talk down the “Crosstown Cup” and give their predictions about who will win the series. With no surprises, the Cubs fan picked the Cubs and the White Sox fan picked the Sox.

The guys also look over John Danks first start of the year against the Miami Marlins on Friday. Danks went six innings, gave up three runs, but got a no decision. Ricky and Mark give their reactions to the start and look at his next start on Wednesday against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.
