Good God, I hate Molina.  At least with Pujols I could respect the man, Molina just looks like a punk that I want to yell at to get off my lawn.

 

Weekend:

 

Who was the oldest player to don a Cubs uniform for a regular season game?

 

 

Monday:

 

Can you name the two Cubs pitchers who have thrown one-hitters in the World Series?

 

(oh, and thanks to my clumsiness, I have a bandaid on my thumb (yes, I am THAT clumsy).  It's amazing how much it screws with my typing.)

I'll guess Ed Reulbach for one of the one hitters.

Oldest Cubs player... Can only think of Hoyt Wilhelm in the early 1970's. He only pitched in a few games with the Cubs at the end of the year (and as I recall was absolutely horrible for them).

I know Claude Passeau pitched a 1-hitter in 1945 against the Tigers.

Wrong and shame on you for not understanding the ease of this question... its

 

DICK TIDROW ... duh

 

Tidrow is as old as the universe itself ... he is the person that created baseball and it is he who is the only pitcher ever that chooses not to throw a perfect game everytime... because he wants the mere mortals to feel important.

Spriggs with the other two answers, therefore I award him -5 points for being smarmy.

Goat gets on the board with 7 points for a Dick Tidrow reference.  Then he loses 7 points for a Dick Tidrow reference because Dick potentially wants those points.

He was 48-49 depending on when he was traded. He played the next year as well.

The Calendar says 47 in 1970.  YOU SHALL NOT TAKE THE NAME OF THE CALENDAR IN VAIN NOR SHALL YE BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST THE CALENDAR!

He was 47 in a Cubs uniform, 712 and 72 he played for other teams.  Not sure why he wasn't more loyal to the Cubs.

That's where I was off. FanGraphs only show "2 Teams" in the line and I assumed he was a Cub the last year that "2 Teams" showed in his line, which was 1971.
