I know there is a top 100 Cubs of all-time here at BCB. I also know that we all probably have our own individual top ten Cubs list… but I wonder who are some of the worst men to ever wear a Chicago Cubs uniform? Has anybody wearing a Cubs uniform ever been a disgrace to this beloved team, or to Major League Baseball in general?
Is it possible to make up a top 25 worst Cubs of all-time?
By this, I don’t mean a player coming up and only having one major league at bat and striking out. Or a player only getting the chance to pinch run and get out attempting to steal. But, these people has to have really cast a negative light upon this team or MLB while wearing a Cubs uniform.
Personally, I think my most hated Cub is not a player, but a GM. Larry Himes. I’m sure some will argue because he brought over Sosa, but I find his work despicable and it was during his tenure that I almost became bitter at this team. I thought him disrespectfully releasing Dawson and Maddux unforgivable, and his silly rules having played a part in Ryne Sandberg losing his joy of baseball…for awhile. He came back after Himes was gone.
What do you guys think? Any forgettable/unforgivable Cubs? Any front office move you wish never happened? How come?
I would love to hear some of your thoughts and examples. Take care!
Go Cubs Go ’09!
