Thanks to me bringing my laptop home on Friday, my run-down son got to sleep in this morning and woke up 2 hours later than he normally does.  Thanks to me being generous to my son, you don't get the Calendar trivia this morning.  Here is something else though:

 

This season saw the Cubs use a franchise record 83 players.  Which season?  Double bonus points if you can get the season that saw the 2nd most.

I recall using a ridiculous amount of SP in 2006.  Sure.  Let's go with that.  2006.

2010 is 10th with 67.

 

At least I'm going in the right direction.

 

Fine, since I think it was in the last few years I'll go with ...

 

2012.

Close enough, 2000 with 75.

 

But hey, Theo isn't interested in getting looks at players, just trotting out the veterans.

 

 

Or maybe a 1944 war year thing? 

1944 is 55th with 54.

 

I'll go with something crazy like the 1981 split season. 

 

53rd with 54.
