Who stood out this season for the Chicago Cubs? Who would Ernie Banks name as the 2019 Top three players of the All-Cub Awards?

I’ve written numerous critical comments and articles about the Chicago Cubs. Then I usually post them to social media. Once on social media, commentary explodes about good players and bad and why this guy is better than that guy and all the rest.

After listening to fans and reading what they’ve posted in these fan groups across social media, going into the New Year, it seems only right that we praise the heroics, play and deeds of three of the Chicago Cubs top players of 2019 in the first annual, “All-Cub Awards”.

This was the criterion I used for selecting this year’s winners:

  1. Plays their heart out and leaves nothing on the field.
  2. Puts up valuable offensive production for the team consistently.
  3. Valuable member of society that gives back.
  4. Demonstrates Cubs spirit

To elaborate on those criterion (hey I’ve got to make a living too) I’ve weighed many fans’ opinions about players and who is deserving of the title of one of the best Cubs of 2019. The player should be out there giving life and limb for the win and at the same time producing offensively if possible (pitchers can hit too… sometimes), is making a contribution back to society and shows that Cub spirit on or off the field.

When we think of these well-rounded players of the year, we think of the type of player Ernie Banks was and know exactly the kind of player we’re honoring. These are the kind of players that if Banks were alive today, he’d call ‘All-Cub’.

On behalf of Cub fans everywhere, here are my fan 2019 All-Cub awards.
