1.  Can you name the Cubs opening day starting infield for the 2001 season?

2.  Can you name the Cubs opening day starting infield for the 2002 season?  (Hint:  none started in both years -- 8 different players to name)

Can we do this like Sporcle, and just type random names in to see if they pop up?

 

I feel like there was a Gonzalez in there somewhere, and maybe a Hernandez...

Ha, guess I shouldn't have gone with naming OFers. Looks like my reading comprehension needs some work.

Stairs & McGriff were about that time weren't they? I believe they were back to back years.
