Ultimately, I chose the Cardinals for the reason that I don't really view the Whine Sux as a rival. Whereas, the Cards being in the same division and all, I decided they HAD to be my choice. Now, had the poll question merely asked who I HATED the most, without mentioning the rival aspect, it would be the Whine Sux, without question.
I DO hates me some White Sox, fer shore!

I would add the Mets and/or Yankees to that list before Boston, even with the compensation shenanigans. The rivalry has never been big for me since the days when the Cubs were in the East is well before my time, but it definitely is for the old timers i.e. I remember Santo always hated going to Shea after the 69 season. Yankees are everyones most hated team so I think they deserve a mention. New York is just a pretty natural rival for Chicago in general too I think.
Boston isnt really a rivalry to me. We just don't play eachother enough for anything to develop. Yeah there was the compensation thing, but that doesn't make a rivalry to me especially since Theo has already traded with them since that whole issue.
Edit: Also, I kinda hate Miami. Between them beating us in 03, Ozzie being their manager, the ridiculous over-the-top stadium, and the fact that they share the same city as the Heat, just sends a lot of hate their way. I wouldn't call them a rival and wouldnt include them on this list, but definitely a team I don't like.

How did the Mets not get a mention? They're number 2 for me b/c of '69.....no, I dont think its weird to dislike a team for something that happened before I was born
Right there with you TC. I've been holding a grudge for 43 years, I'm not letting go now!
