Who holds both the Cubs single-season SB record, with 67, and career SB record, with 402?

If they weren't stupid and traded Campana it would have been an obvious answer. Also, I didn't have a clue on the answer, so, I looked it up and FanGraphs is showing different results than those numbers.

Interesting, B-Ref is showing him at 402 for his Cubs career andFagraphs has him at 400 for his career.

Although, I do think Fangraphs has some issues with their stats. I know a regimes thig year they didn't have the same season stats for Baez as what was slang in his game logs.

I did find the single-season SB leader.  Spriggs, just so you can give the correct answer, they are talking "modern era" baseball.

Single season I'd think Juan Pierre would be up there, but he wasn't around long enough to be the career leader.

Wrong.  The player in question was kind of a big deal.  And played 1B.

I was thinking Frank Chance for the career leader.  Even before the dead giveaways.

Nobody ever said the player was dead (but he is).

Actually the single season record is Bill Lange in 1896 with 84.

Then:

1890 Walt Wilmot 76

1894 Walt Wilmot 74

1897 Bill Lange    73

Then:

1903 Frank Chance 67

 

The career record is Chance by himself with 400 per FanGraphs and 402 per B-R. Bill Lange was just behind with 399 FanFraphs and 400 B-R.

 

Sandberg is actually 4th for career with 344 in both places.

Figures is someone who played over 5 decades ago.  

 

Looking at the stolen base leaders the only names that show up in the top 20 for the past 50 years are Sandberg, Sosa, and Dunston.  I did not know Sandberg stole 54 bases in 1985
