Chicago Cubs: Randy Myers – 1993 to 1995

I hated to use this picture, but it was the only one formatted to fit. Randy Myers rose to fame with the Cincinnati Reds, but his three years in Chicago were memorable. The Cubs didn’t have a great team at the time. 1993 was the last year of the NL East as it was known, and the NL Central and the six divisions came in the next season. The Cubs never finished higher than third, but Myers was a huge part of the win total.

In 1993, his first year with the Cubs, Myers saved 53 games and led the league in saves. It was the only year of his three with the Cubs that he was not an All-Star. Throughout his time in Chicago, he saved 112 games and has 17 blows saves. The Cubs won just 206 in those three years, and Myers saved 54 percent of those games.

He led the league three times in saves, two times with the Cubs (1993, 1995) and once with Baltimore in 1997. Myers saved 347 games in his career, good for 12th on the list for All-Time. He collected more of those in Chicago than in any place, and that’s why his career in Chicago was memorable to Cubs’ fans.
