Fan Favorites By The Numbers: Mark Grace

This is the last scheduled Favorite, so I'm picking mine.

Fan Foils By The Numbers: Sam Zell

He never suited up for the Cubs, but this "suit" did some awful things for and to the Cubs. Caution:"tl;dr" ahead.

Fan Favorites By The Numbers: Andre Dawson

The Hawk patrolled right field like few others.

Fan Foils By The Numbers: Alex Gonzalez

Limited skills and wrong place, wrong time.

Exhibit A for why you don't spend money on middle relievers.

Fan Favorites By The Numbers: Rick Monday

Largely known for a single act of national pride, today's Fan Favorite was also a pretty good ballplayer.

Fan Foils By The Numbers: Jeff Blauser

In this week's Fan Foils, we're reminded that "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em" is not a strong way to operate a baseball team.

Fan Favorites By The Numbers: Jody Davis

If the fans consistently chanted your name, you're a candidate for Fan Favorites.

Fan Foils By The Numbers: Danny Jackson

In this week's Fan Foils, we call on the phrase "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it."
