Now seems as good a time as any to speculate on what Al's top 10 Cub list will look like.
Here are the best Cubs I can think of who haven't yet appeared in the top 100, in no particular order:
Three Finger Brown
There's no longer any question about the players. What's going to be interesting is the order. Was Sandberg or Herman the best second baseman in Cub history (my vote is for Sandberg, who had much better power and was a better fielder than Herman)? Was Jenkins or Brown the best pitcher? Was Sammy Sosa better than Billy Williams? How does Cap Anson, who played in the 19th century, fit in with these 20th century players? How much does Sosa get docked due to his attitude and possible steroid use?
I won't even try to make a top 10 list (that's Al's job, and he's done a very good one so far). But of course, anyone else is welcome to insert these players into an order they see fit. Then we can compare with what Al ultimately decides. I look forward to the next 10 days!
