As two of the best teams in baseball through the first month, there's a good chance that Chicago's White Sox and Cubs will both reach the playoffs.

And if both teams were to face off in the World Series, one White Sox executive believes the matchup would be more fierce than New York's own showdown in the 2000 Fall Classic.

"They experienced it in New York, but New York isn't like Chicago," Brooks Boyer, the White Sox's senior VP of sales and marketing, told's Scott Merkin. "The Mets-Yankees is not White Sox-Cubs.

"None of those other rivalries are like this. This would be a true civil war," Boyer added. "It would really separate the city. It would be awesome."

The last time the Cubs and White Sox were in the playoffs together was in 2008, when both sides were quickly dispatched in the division series by the Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Rays, respectively.

They'll get some potential World Series warmups against one another from July 25-28, when the White Sox host the Cubs for two games before the series moves to Wrigley Field.
