Cubs Trivia:

When Jerome Walton won the National League Rookie of the Year in 1989, which teammate finished second in the voting?

I will be away from the computer today, but fortunately this is a very easy one, so you won't need me to confirm the correct answer.

1989, what a year. Who remembers who the winning pitcher was that ended the Cubs season in the playoffs that year against the Giants?

Having trouble remembering the Giants pitching staff. I know they had a lot of ex-Cubs. Was it one of those?

In that case, I will guess Rick Reuschel (although I don't remember it). I have 3 other ex-Cubs ready for my next guess!

My next guesses were going to be Lefferts and then Krukow. Do you think Reuschel is correct?

Rick Reuschel is correct! As if there were any doubt that you'd get it right, Spriggs. :P

Believe me, that was lucky. I just said Reuschel because you said he was one of your favorites... I thought Reuschel would be the most logical at that point, but I wanted to say Lefferts. I just looked up the 89 Giants and these appear to be all the ex-Cubs and soon to be ex-Cubs pitchers. Not sure if they were all suited up for the playoffs though:

Reuschel
Lefferts
Krukow
Gossage
Mulholland (a future opening day Cubs starter!)
