Chicago Cubs: Santo controls the hot corner

Starter: Ron Santo

Next to Banks and Sandberg, the next famous Cub in history has to be Santo.  A 14-year member of the Cubs, he earned All-Star status nine times in his career.  He also took home five Gold Gloves as well.

Santo averaged 24 home runs during his 14 years, between 1964-67 he kicked it up a notch, averaging 30 long balls annually. The beloved third baseman won the 1973 Lou Gehring Memorial Award and earned induction into the Hall of Fame posthumously in 2012.

Backup: Aramis Ramirez

Ramirez spent nine years on the North Side. He was a two-time All-Star with the Cubs (05/08). As a Cub, Ramirez slammed 239 home runs across 4,705 plate appearances. Ramirez also won some hardware during his time with the team; he was 2008 recipient of the National League Hank Aaron Award and won a Silver Slugger in 2011.

Honorable Mention: Kris Bryant, Vance Law, Bill Madlock
