TCR Junk Drawer

There are some known bugs with this currently. Please check our FAQ if you're experiencing any problems

Just wanted to give everyone a head's up about one of our new pages: the Cubs 40-Man Roster. We think it's an improvement over the one at The two neatest features are that you can sort by column and you've got each players' option year info at your fingertips, which was mined from Arizona Phil's wonderful work.  

You can access it either by the "TCR Junk Drawer" menu link up top or the sidebar link under "Quick Links".

Let us know if there's any other info you think should be added. Ideally it would be nice to put service time up there for each player, but that's a bit difficult to keep track of on a consistent basis. Possibly we could use Opening Day and then various other benchmarks within the season to update it.

The phrase "ex-Cub factor" has been thrown around quite a bit. It was
originally coined by writer and Cub fan Ron Berler, who wrote an
article in 1981 stating that since the Yankees of that season had five
ex-Cubs on their roster, they were doomed to lose the World Series if
they got there. He was right -- they lost to the Dodgers in six games.
