How many games ahead of the White Sox would the 1906 Cubs have finished if they played in the same league?

I think that question is flawed.  They would have played different teams and garnered different results if they had played in the same league.

 

I'll take a guess and say 23.

Just ask Spriggs, he made it to almost every game that year.

Yeah, I'd say.  

 

From 1903-1913 they went 1068-598 (.641)

And then we got 100 years of poor ownership culminating in Zell.

Yeah.  1906 Season Tickets were a retirement present from his kids.

For the 5 years from 1906 to 1910, the Cubs were 530-235 (.693), with a few ties. They averaged 106 wins a year with a season being only 154 games.

 

Then, we got 105 reasons for losing.
