From 1966 to 1973, how many winning seasons did the 1966-1973 Chicago Cubs have as the 1966-1973 Chicago Cubs?

They had exactly 6 winning years over that 8 year stretch. (I actually have no clue (I would venture that I'm close.))

I'm confused which season are we talking about? The question was not clear.

They did!  Six straight from 67-72. 

 

Nevertheless, they underachieved.  Doesn't seem like the core of those teams ever came close to all having real good seasons at the same time.  All those teams had at least 4 hall of famers (not including Durocher) - except maybe 1972.  All had solid starting pitching and bullpens... to go with a lineup of 3 HOFers in the middle and several supporting All-Star and All-Star calibre players (Beckert, Kessinger, Hickman, Hundley, Regan, Abernathy, Callison, Pepitone).  Damnit.
