If you go to a Cubs game, avoid at all costs sitting in the 200 level seats. They are at the rear of the lower deck and between the upper deck's overhang and the luxury box's hanging beneath it, you won't see the sky or the rooftops and will get the sensation of watching baseball from a darkened cave. If something spendier that puts you further towards the front of the lower deck isn't possible, then go with the upper deck and the 400 and 500 level seats, the former especially.

I also recommend the bleachers. The lack of attention paid to the game due to the party atmosphere of drinking and girl watching isn't for everyone. However, with the team playing so badly, the secondary market prices likely aren't as high as in most years. You'll have fun too.

If you go to a White Sox game, avoid upper deck tickets. It's very steep and you won't be allowed access to the lower deck. The views from the lower deck are pretty good and the food at Comiskey is superior to that available at Wrigley. Just sit downstairs.
