Although rivalries in baseball are a lot of fun, the nature of an intracity rivalry is such that it can get a little more personal than, say, when Cubs fans are dunking on St. Louis for being boring or Milwaukee for being Wrigley North.
So the rumble-in-the-stands stuff has historically been a little more frequent in Cubs-Sox than other match-ups, and unfortunately last night was no exception. And apparently, it was going on so long and so visibly that even Cubs pitchers and players were taking note:
The Cubs bullpen is watching a fight in the stands. As such, the Cubs bullpen is all of us

Rizzo turned around and pointed to it before the inning started. And he was still peeking back in between pitches early in the inning, lol. https://t.co/qlicSGdDXK
