The Chicago Cubs turned in an incredibly frustrating year, but there were plenty of solid individual performances that were lost in the big picture.

The regular season has officially concluded, so we can finally put together our regular season letter grades. You know what happened, lets not talk about it. It was back a few months ago when grades were given out for the key players’ performances in the first half, so now the final report card can be completed for the 2019 Chicago Cubs.

Obviously some grades will look similar and some will look different. There will also be players added to the list who were acquired later and some taken off who were either traded away or were just not a key part of the team in the final several months (i.e. injuries or DFA). We will still stick to the key core of players and not ones who played a few weeks in a September callup or had a brief MLB stint.

As per usual these assessments will be given out using a typical A,B,C,D,F grading system. Same factors will be taken into account: overall statistics, situational performance, consistency, fulfilling their designated role on the team, etc.

Lastly, as always, these are up for debate so please comment and give your thoughts on the following grades.
