traffic for Sox playoffs

Recommended Posts

Lawrence Holmes pointed out that assuming the Sox are the three seed that means they are playing game three vs the astros in chicago the same day as the Bears are hosting and the Chicago Marathon.

It may very well take 2.5 hours to get in and around the ball park.

 

Curious if anyone has any suggestions

Wait, are we to assume you'll be in attendance for the Sox playoffs this year? 😂😂

Park somewhere outside the course route and take CTA.

The Marathon doesn't terribly impact getting to and from the neighborhood.  I would hope it is a night game regardless.

Sox are going to get swept in 2 - yes, the first two losses will be so lopsided that MLB will make them forfeit the 3rd - so I wouldn't worry about it.

Game 3 for ALDS would be the day off for the NLDS. If the Yanks or Red Sox are in it, Sox game would probably be about a 3 PM game, with the other game starting at 6/6:30. If those 2 aren't in it, it could go either way I would think.

Looks like the course turns east at 33rd, and shouldn't close 35th or the Dan Ryan exits.

Good call re Yanks or Sawx.  They would definitely get the evening game.

I think they set ALDS times before they know the outcome of the WC game, so I think they're going to schedule as if one of those teams is playing. I expect the Sox to host Houston at 3 or 3:30 on Sunday.

I usually take 31st for the A lot. Looks like I'll need to find a different route.

And if memory serves, the bulk of the marathon traffic is past Bridgeport/Armour Square by 3 or 4.

Just stay home, and whine on Soxtalk. But the Bears aren’t home that day.

It’s a White Sox playoff game, and the ALDS is not that expensive of a ticket. About the same as a Sox vs. Cubs.

I was just trying to be positive about the Sox actually making the series this year, Dick.  Hell I'd go to every game if I could.

It would be nice if they would put the damned things on sale!
