December 3, 1903: The Cubs got Mordecai Brown and Jack O’Neill from the St. Louis Cardinals for Larry McLean and Jack Taylor.
Here’s one honorable mention for the next time a Cardinals fan wants to remind you of the Lou Brock deal:
Mordecai “Three Finger” Brown was a six-time 20 game winner for the Cubs and the ace of the Cubs 1908 World Series championship team when he went 29-9.
He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1949.
So we’ve got that going for us, Cubs fans… which is nice…
