Below is a list of 27 great seasons by Cubs players since 1900. We're in search of the greatest Cub season and while they're may be some that deserved to be in the top 27, we're sure that we didn't miss any that deserved the top spot. It's like our own version of the NCAA tournament. Choose whatever criteria you wish:  awards, historical significance, sabermetric dominance...whatever you feel makes it worthy of the title "Best Cubs Season Ever". We are going to close comments on the poll and ask that you wait until Tuesday when we'll have a full post up on this to discuss.

  • Don't mess with the SI jinx. Since the Javy/Cubs cover came out, he is 2-for-20 with no walks.

  • BRADSBEARD: If all three are assigned to Eugene, the Cubs can play Galindo, Paredes, and Paniagua at the same time by moving Paredes between SS-3B-DH, Galindo between 3B-1B-DH, and Paniagua between 1B-LF-DH. 

    The Cubs like to have their players (including their minor leaguers) learn to play more than one position even if they eventually are projected to settle at one spot, and I suspect that will be reflected at Eugene, with just about everybody who will be assigned there able to play at least two positions.

  • Thanks - at least the scorer was consistent

  • I don't think the error call was completely out of the blue but the ball took a very bad hop and would have taken a very good play to get it. Same with one of the Stella throws where I think it could have easily been ruled a hit. Neither were cut and dry calls though imo.

  • chased a high fastball...

    I think his BABIP during his run has been around .950

  • Great stuff CubbyBlue!!! I think it inspired today's six spot as well.

  • That's all fine and good, but I think it's short-changing the Arrieta-like affect of his beard

  • Was the error scored on Zobrist's third ab ruled correctly? Ron was saying that it was a pretty tough chance for the fielder

  • Did anybody see that Zobrist strikeout?

    That was extremely disappointing.

  • Strangest win of the year, and one of the sweetest. Twice I thought it was easily in the bag, then after the first 2 hitters in the 9th I thought all was lost. Big game for Grimm, Strop & Rondon. But, man, those Cards can hit for power.

  • Very satisfying, gut-check win today. The beers on the trip back to Chicago are going to taste fantastic.

  • It's still very early but this game felt very important to me and probably knocked 2 years off my life. Seemed like every inning was big.

  • This is the exact game that the Cubs would have lost in years past to the Cardinals.

  • Arrieta starting. Leads of 6-1 and 9-4. You don't expect to have such a sense of relief when they win.
