The All-Time greats that I’ve seen play first base for the Chicago Cubs. I took the first three seen I’ve seen than more than the others

Chicago Cubs and the coronavirus, am I right? It looks like the season won’t get started until July. How wonderful. Still, I’ve assembled some players–in no particular order–that stuck with me in my lifetime. These are the players that I’ve seen play in my lifetime, the top three. Now realize, I only have so many players as I have since I was would say, five.

These players are in no order. I’ll admit, I call it as I see it. If I see something ‘magical’? I’ll take it. Whether it’s a cycle, or a double off the gap to score three? That is magical. Now, some got left off this list, and I apologize.

Leon Durham and Eric Karros got lost in the shuffle, and I’m sorry. Durham slashed .278/.361/.482 with an OPS of .843. He had 139 home runs and 487 RBI–two with the Reds. After he left the Cubs, he never was the same. He had three with the Reds and the Cardinals and promptly retired.

Karros was the other one left off the list. After one year with the Cubs–a very successful year–he was the most ‘clutch’ hitter in the group. He had a slash line of .286/.340/.446
with an OPS of .786. He had 12 home runs and 40 RBI, but they felt ‘different.’ More clutch? I don’t know. But I know they felt different than others. Even Sammy Sosa.
