Where would Lou's place be in Chicago Sports History?

I was talking with some family members last night about where, if the Cubs were to win it all while Lou managed, where his place would be in Chicago sports history.

Obviously Ditka is Da Coach and will always be Da Coach.

So he would place behind Ditka.

One other reason is the Bears are an all Chicago team.  The Cubs only have part of the baseball pie.  The biggest part but still just a part.

But honestly I think he'd be ahead of Phil Jackson because I don't think despite him winning 6 titles here Phil was ever really beloved here.  

Where Lovie Smith would find himself if he were to win a Super Bowl would really be interesting.  Still behind Da Coach but he and Pinella would have an interesting battle for #2.

And all 3 would be ahead of Ozzie and I think Phil will be ahead of Ozzie.
