A middle infield of magic: Neifi Perez, Jose Macias, Ryan Theriot, Jeff Blauser.


In the same vein, how about relief pitchers: Joe Borowski, LaTroy Hawkins, Rod Beck and Kevin Gregg.

Ernie Banks. Being called Mr Cub says it all.

The next guy represents the great Cubs teams of the past. Frank Chance. He's in the Hall of Fame and a Cubs world champion... both as a player and as a manager.

Gabby Hartnett -This is a tough call, with Stan Hack, Kiki Cuyler, Roger Hornsby, and Hack Wilson in the same era of the Cubs greatest teams (even without a World Series win) of the 1930's. But Hartnett is a former MVP, Hall of Famer, a 19 year Cub with a famous moment (the Homer in the Gloamin'). He gets the nod.

There are many "snubs" here, from Ryne Sandberg to Billy Williams to Ron Santo... but we need a Pitcher. The best pitcher nobody remembers was 3 Finger Brown. Greg Maddux was great, but he will always be known as a Brave. That leaves one guy, who also represents a different ethnic background as well as even a different COUNTRY. Fergie Jenkins. While he technically only played half his career as a Cub, he will forever be known as a Cub great.

Cap Anson (one of thr most hated figures in baseball history or not), Frank Chance, Ernie Banks, Ryan Sandberg. Gabby Hartnett may well deserve Sandberg's spot, but this way better represents more generations.
