 The Chicago Cubs had more than their fair share of top moments. But we did our best to pick out our favorites from last season, and hopefully, they’ll be some of yours as well.

With all the exciting moments from the Chicago Cubs season, it’s the last play that many of us will remember. But there were plenty of good ones before then. From Jake Arrieta to the final out of the World Series–we give you our top five moments of the 2016 season.

Some might say that Kyle Hendricks “came out of nowhere” last season. But if you’ve been paying attention, you’d know better than that. Hendricks moved squarely into the Cy Young conversation by winning the NL ERA title–and improving on his already fine start to his career. So what’s next for Hendricks? Hopefully, more of the same.

Cubs owner Tom Ricketts said that Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer will have the final say on the Cubs and Jake Arrieta. This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, but there have been owners–looking at you, Yankees–where the owner thinks they know better than everyone else. Epstein and Hoyer built this team, and Ricketts trusts them to make the right decision.
