Crosstown Series 2005, Round One

I might not be watching this on TV or listening to WGN, but between MLB GameDay and this live blog, I have all I need.

The final: White Sox: 5, Cubs: 1

The best team in baseball improves their record to 30-12, being the first team to reach 30 wins this season. The Cubs drop to 18-21. As the Cardinals are facing the Royals the next three days, if the Cubs don't improve against the Sox, they'll be nine games from first place come Monday.

Why are the two three-game series between the Cubs and White Sox called the Crosstown Series? The Mets and Yankees have the Subway Series. As the same CTA El line feeds Wrigley Field and U.S. Cellular Field, and as the two ballparks are actually quite close to each other, can't the local papers call these games the Red Line Series?

Perusing the rest of the interleague matches this season, I'm scratching my head as to why the Orioles aren't playing the Nationals in 2005. Is Peter Angelos still so bitter about the Expos organization's move to "his turf" that the MLB were touchy-feely with the schedules?
