I'm a Cub fan (I think that's pretty well known around these parts). This isn't the kind of battle that makes any sense in starting. We got swept out of the first round of the playoffs after having the best record in the NL during the regular season. Pointing out that the Cards didn't make the playoffs in this instance is Pavlovian in its simplicity.
You forgot manager - which has to be Bruce Bochy. People that should be considered: Ken Caminiti - 1996 NL MVP Gary Sheffield - 1992 NL Batting Champ (.330) Fred McGriff - 1992 NL HR leader (35) Randy Jones - 1976 Cy Young, 1975 ERA Champ (2.24)
