This, from a long conversation over cold beer (and cigars) on a hot summers evening with my friend Kevin McQuade, here is the authoritative list of the top Chicago Cubs of all time by position:

  1. Pitcher: (tie) Mordecai “Three Fingers” Brown/Fegie Jenkins
  2. Catcher: Gabby Harnett
  3. 1st Base: Cap Anson
  4. 2nd Base: Ryne Sandberg
  5. 3rd Base: Ron Santo
  6. Shortstop: Ernie Banks
  7. Left Field: Billy Williams
  8. Center Field: Hack Wilson
  9. Right Field: Andre Dawson

Extra bases: After long consideration, Kevin and I also concluded that the number one reason for the Cubs’ 106 year World Series drought is: historically weak pitching.
