FormerCubs

Here's a collection of Cubs players who went on to have better careers after being a Cub.

Rafael Palmeiro After his first 3 years, as a Cub, the Cubs got rid of him after he hot .307 in 1988. Went on to be a .300 hitter for the O's and Rangers and has made several all-star appearances.

Greg Maddux Did nothing but good for the Cubs. A CY Young winner. A guy you hafta do anything possible to keep on your team. Probably the best pitcher of the 90's. Everyone will always remember him as a Brave, not a Cub, HAHA!

Dennis Eckersley The Cubs had him for a few short years. They had him starting where he was an ok pitcher, nothing special. In '87 they traded him to the A's along with Dan Rohn, for Dave Wilder, Brian Guinn, and Mark Leonette(???). With the A's he became the best RELIEF PITCHER in baseball. oops!

Kent Bottenfield Cubs let him go to the Cardinals in '98. Guess what, now he's an all-star!

Lou Brock 938 stolen bases. 3,000+ hits. Hall of Famer. Former Cub! Got his 3,000th hit against the Cubs!

Todd Zeile The Cubs had him for a short time in '95. Now he's doing great for the Texas Rangers

Joe Carter Was a rookie with the Cubs in '83 and got only 51 at-bats. He went on to hit 30+ home runs a year for the Indians and the Blue Jays.

Doug Glanville Traded for Mickey Morandini. Enough said.

Jamie Moyer Was 17-5 in '97 and 15-9 last year with 158 strikeouts and a 3.53 ERA for the Mariners.

Luis Gonzalez A Cub from '95-'96. The Cubs didn't re-sign him, now he's an all-star for the Diamondbacks.

Turk Wendell Doing pretty good with the Mets with an ERA around 2.50, lower than Rod Beck's weight!!

E-mail me if you have any Cubs not on this list!
