Steve Garvey almost was a Cub?

If you click on the link, it takes you to an archived newspaper article from late 1982 where the Chicago Cubs pursued then-free agent first-baseman Steve Garvey.

And I still get angry when I think about that homerun he hit off Lee Smith with that image of him raising his fist in the air.
