The All-Time Greatest Surprise Cubs Killers
A few of you were unimpressed by my previous post by telling me that it should be expected that the top hitters in the game were also the top hitters versus the Cubs. A fair assessment...
So who were the most unexpected Cubs killers? In other words, who saved their best to drive some nails in the Cubs' coffins? Reader "big_lowitzki" did the research for us and provided me with the list.
Using 350 PA's as the cutoff again, here's your top 10 surprise Cubs killers:
|Player||OPS vs. Cubs
I don't know who Johnny Edwards is, but he seems like he was a real pest to the Cubs. Of course, those numbers still pale in comparision to Jeff Blauser's .264 OPS discrepancy albeit it in only 299 PA's (it's a .253 difference if you discount his two years with the Cubs).
I'd provide the full list, but I'm having problems importing it into Google docs and I think Cubnut wanted to do a post of the top Cubs patsies, so you'll have to wait for that.
UPDATE: Reader Leningrad Cowboy takes it a step further and subtracts the players line versus the Cubs from their overall OPS numbers. The lists are similar with a few minor exceptions.
