I almost used the word 'trifecta' for today (since we have three days of Calendar Trivia to catch up on); however, the last time I watched ESPN, they used the word 97 times in a 30 second commercial so I now hate the word 'trifecta'.

 

Weekend:

Who holds the Cubs record for most career pinch hits?

 

Monday:

Which HoF pitcher finished his Cubs career with a 188-86 record?

 

Today:

Which Cubs player has the highest career fielding percentage at any position?

Weekend.  The pinch hitter is prolly Dwight Smith.  (a little under a hundred?)

Monday.  3-Finger Mordecai Centennial Brown

Tuesday.  This is a tough question.  Minimum number of chances?   Matt Stairs?

Darwin Barney has to be up there in Fielding percentage, since he went so ridiculously long without an error.

For a career player with a lot of chances, it almost has to be a first baseman though. 
 
However Stairs (and prolly about a zillion other short time Cubs) had a perfect career fielding %.  He was 1.00% in the outfield for the Cubs in 2001.  People use to use that as an example of how stupid fielding %'s could be, since Stairs was clearly such a horrible, horrible, atrocious outfielder.

How about Jerry Morales for Pinch hits?

 

This question is worded ambiguously.  Was that his record with the Cubs or overall?  If its with the Cubs, I will dare to go against Spriggs and say Fergie.

 

I will however take a cue from Spriggs and guess Grimm on this one.

Yes (50)

Yes

NO - The player does have a qualified number of AB's.

I thought about him and Ken Hubbs. Since Hubbs played for such a short time and he did set the consecutive errorless game record. Also Sandberg... but it must be a first baseman. Grace and Lee would be good guesses.
