My love of baseball goes far beyond the Chicago Cubs. I'm all about random, long-forgotten players, quirks from their careers and often overlooked statistics. I can talk all day about these types of things, so when the Immaculate Grid game took the Internet and baseball by storm, it quickly became a staple in my daily routine.

But working through these daily puzzles got me thinking of the long list of Cubs players I've seen in my lifetime - a number of whom played for a number of teams during their careers - and I figured it's time I put some of them down in some sort of list. Maybe, after reading, you'll file this knowledge away for when you take a crack at Immaculate Grid. Or, if you have no honor or self-respect at all, you'll pull it up while working on it, just for a chance to best your friends.

Cubs Immaculate Grid Answers: Some easy ones to get started

When you think of former Cubs who donned plenty of caps over the years, none stand out more than journeyman right-hander Edwin Jackson. His time in Chicago was, well let's just say it didn't go according to plan - but the guy clearly did something right, pitching for 14 MLB teams over the course of his 17-year career.

Jackson toed the rubber for the Cubs, Rays, Dodgers, Nationals, Tigers, White Sox, Diamondbacks, Braves, Cardinals, Athletics, Padres, Orioles, Marlins and Blue Jays, amassing a 107-133 record with a 4.78 ERA in 412 appearances, including 318 starts. So, when in doubt, picking a guy who pitched for nearly half the teams in Major League Baseball is a good place to start.

The younger generation might not be familiar with his work, but longtime reliever Mike Morgan spent parts of five seasons with the Cubs in the 1990s and, during a length 22-year career, pitched for a dozen different clubs. A World Series champion with the Diamondbacks in 2001, the right-hander also pitched for the Dodgers, Mariners, Cardinals, Athletics, Reds, Twins, Rangers, Yankees, Orioles and Blue Jays.
