The dawn of a new year and decade is upon us. The Chicago Cubs enjoyed a mostly successful 10 years and were led by some fantastic young superstars. Let us look back at the best draft picks in the decade.

Imagining the beginning of a new decade is strange. Time stops for the briefest of moments before the clock begins once again ticking. Ten years is a long time. In the game of baseball, ten years feels like an eternity.

For the Cubs, there were many transitions from where the team began the decade at to where they are now, and what they hope to accomplish moving forward. We started it off with Jim Hendry. We are finishing it with the king, Theo Epstein.

The overall scope of the team has dramatically changed as well, and that couldn’t have been done without the leadership analytically driving the shifting nature of the club. From 2010 to 2019, it is time to dive into Chicago’s top draft selections.
