    Bartman. Ouch. I guess someone who grew up on the Cubs could weigh in on the Play by Play. I’d say Carey, but someone closer to the situation might think differently.

    Probobly depends on your age, Myself I didn’t get the Superstaion WGN till after Harry Carey was there so to me it is him, But as you say Those who are fans dating back to the 70s or before would say Brickhouse.

    Nice job. Didn’t know about Jimmy Ryan who had some longevity with the Cubs. They have some good IF candidates who didn’t make your club … Tinker, Evers, Chance, .. then throw in current Cubs Ramirez & Lee!

    Great team and choices. I would feel very secure as much as any duo of closers to finish out the game with Lee Smith and Bruce Sutter. It doesn’t get much better than those two.

    Nice job on the Cubbies!:)
