10 best single season performances by Chicago Cubs players in the last decade
After a century of underperforming in their limited playoff appearances, The Chicago Cubs turned a corner in the 2010s and finally fielded a consistent team for several consecutive years. Although things got off to a slow start when Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer took over the front office in 2011, the Cubs were a force to be reckoned with in the National League by the middle of the decade.
This playoff window was possible by the pieces put in place by Epstein and company, whether it be through trades or the high draft picks from the bad years (2010-2014). These players not only broke the 108-year-old curse, but some of them turned in a few of the greatest single season performances in franchise history. Let's look at some of the outstanding seasons Cubs players have had in the last 10 years.
