So it's raining for the first time since Father's Day weekend (at least daytime rain, we've had a shower or two overnight) and there are more accidents in Des Moines than Dale Sveum haters in this site! Srsly folks, it's rain.

Who led the Cubs in hits for the entire 1970's? Why do I feel like we've done this one before?

No, although the answer does have a "n" and an "i" and an "o" in his name...or her name.

I can't think of anyone who was there longer than Don Kessinger and he did bat lead off too... 6 years at about 150 hits... 900 hits for Kess.  Billy had two less years, so he's out.

Just to be different than Spriggs, I'll go with Rick Monday.

Well I had no idea, the 70's were before my time so I just found a roster from the middle of the decade and took a guess.

Rain, is that what they call this wet stuff? Strange. I guess that's why I have these rubber things that move back and forth on my windshield, and these headlights.

Monday was a good guess.  I thought about him, but I just didn't think he played quite long enough. He batted lead off quite a bit too, but he walked way more than Kessinger.  So, I was thinking Kessinger, Williams and Monday.  But now thinking Monday might have been 2nd. 

 

Sweet swinging Manny had 2 stints with the Cubs.  Maybe if you added his hits from the 80s with the Cubs he'd be close.

I believe the word you were looking for is "plaid".

 

Grammar... smh!
