Cubs, Cardinals – It doesn’t matter what uniform you wear
Yes, the Cubs and Cardinals are long-time rivals, but it’s the fact that some players will be playing against their former team that really sets this rivalry off. Whether it’s in Chicago or St. Louis, it feels the same to the player. The players have made this what it is.
In the eyes of Cubs fans, Dexter Fowler will always be a Cub after helping them win the World Series in 2016, while John Lackey had one of the best seasons of his career as a Cardinal. In the end, it’s the players that make this rivalry so special, and the Cubs and Cardinals are lucky enough to have benefited from some of the same players.
