I read the article a few days ago. One of the 1919 White Sox claimed the Cubs did it too but didnt name anyone. The article stated that there was one Cub who had a questionable series and that's it. That's why I don't care. If they had come up with anything of any substance I would have cared.
I agree that there isn't much of anything, aside from the fact that the disgraced White Sox claimed it happened, to support the claim. I would imagine there was a fair amount of sordid activity taking place at that time given how little the players were paid and how badly some of the owners treated them.
It is an interesting possibility but unless additional evidence emerges, nothing more.
