BOO unofficial end to summer and the end of my $.84 fountain drink at the gas station.

Weekend:
Who did the Cubs receive in their 1984 trade of Bill Buckner?

Monday:
In 1920 Cubs pitcher Grover Cleveland (seriously, they had some sweet names back then) led the league in wins and what other categories?

Today:
Beginning in 1928 and ending in 1938 the Cubs won the pennant how frequently?

Cubs got Eckersley and some other guy for Buckner

 

I'll guess innings pitched for Cleveland.

 

My guess is 4 times between 28-38.

I agree with Eckersly and I want to say Al Nipper?

Strike outs

'29, '32, '35, '38.  So yeah, 4.

Eckersley is correct.

IP is one of them (363.1) (there are 4 more)

4 is right as well

Nipper is wrong

K's is right (173 (weak))

The years are correct, sir.

I would have to say that complete games is one of them since it was 1920

I get the three deals the Cubs made with the Red Sox in the 80's a bit confused.  I know we got Chuck Rainey from them before '84, Buckner, obviously in '84 and Lee Smith '87ish?  I know there were Nippers and Schiraldis and Eckerlsys and what not. 

 

Hey, How about Loses and ERA for a couple more cats.

ERA - 1.91 - Losses is wrong.  The remaining category is Starts with 40.

 

And all of the names were wrong.

I think the Cubs got Bill Soup Campbell from the Red Sox, so I'll guess him.  They also got Mike Brumley from the Sawx, so I'll guess him too.

 

Grover Cleveland Alexander... prolly led in just about everything.

 

The Cubs won the pennant every 3 years, starting in 1929 and ending in 1938.  You would not believe the awesome piece of memorabilia I have from the 1938 World Series vs NY Yankees.  It's the most awesome thing in my collection by far.  Every single member of the Cubs team signed the WS program by their photo.  Sigs include (Dizzy Dean, Gabby Hartnett, Billy Herman, Phil Caverretta, Stan Hack, and about 15 others.  But the two even cooler things -- one of the Cubs signatures is Tony Lazzeri.  Hall-of-Famer from the famous Yankees Murderer's Row team with Ruth and Gehrig.  Lazzeri died fairly soon after the 1938 series, so his signature is extremely rare.  The other thing is that the front cover of the Program (about 10 pages) has a baseball front and center.  Right on the sweet spot, Joe DiMaggio signed it.  The whole thing is certified authentic as well!

That is very cool Spriggs. How were you able to get all of those signatures though? Did you just stay after the game and have your kid ask?

My grand kid got them all after the last game. The Cubs got swept and they were all pissed, so I was too scared.
