Cubs Trivia:

Two second baseman have hit 25 or more home runs in four consecutive seasons, and both have played for the Cubs during their Major League careers. Can you name them?

I gave up and did some research, resulting in forehead slap. However, I think the calendar is wrong. At lease one player who never played for the Cubs achieved the feat.

After someone gets it right, let me know who you are thinking of. I have someone in mind as well.

I think you're right. So I looked up Kent and Uggla.... Yep. Sure looks like Uggla did it. Good call.

Sandberg & Soriano is what the Calendar reports. Uggla was who I was thinking of.

The calendar has once again proved fallable. Where do I get my refund??

Second baseman has become such a power position. I think with Barney's recent muscling up, he should be joining this list in no time!

unless he starts taking every steroid known to man kind i dont see him jumping from 7 home runs to 25 at any point in time. my expectations would be somewhere around 12-15 max and i dont think he would sustain that for more than a year or two.
