The extensive drought of home runs in the calendar has come to an end.  This 97-day saga has torn apart families, wrecked villages and has shaken this community to the core.  The calendar giveth, the calendar taketh away, today it is givething.

 

Which two Cubs players have hit the most postseason home runs?

Ramirez is right, Sosa is not.

 

The other player did play with Ramirez.

Is this like, ever, or just for the Cubs? Because if it's the latter I don't think there's enough applicable data.

If it's not Alou or DLee, I think it could be Alex Gonzalez, I know he had a power outburst in that postseason. 

 

Wait, is this for homeruns hit as a Cub in the postseason, or total career postseason homeruns regardless of which team they are on, as long as they played for the Cubs?

I would guess it would be for their careers as long as they were once a Cub (and presumably hit one for the Cubs as well). It's my experience with The Calender that it doesn't research enough to ream it down to just for the Cubs.

With that being said, I will guess Edmond as well.

I am guessing career, it is just for the Cubs and Gonzalez is correct.

 

Excellent work!

I think I may have, initially, misread the questions.  I have no clue (Ramirez is a definite that it is just on the Cubs but that is due to the fact he has only made the post-season with the Cubs) if it is Cubs-time only.

It's so weird cause I feel like someone asked this already.

Given the two players, it may be the same regardless.

Must have been a very intelligent person.
