Top 10 Players I Wish Never Left The Chicago Cubs

First the disclaimer: This list is over the last 25 seasons (1983-Present).

I'm only 29-years-old, so we'll go with the players I wish I could have watched at Wrigley Field.

Sorry, Lou Brock, you didn't make the list.

The Cubs have famously, or infamously, moved young players for veterans and let free agents walk that have fans cursing into their Old Styles to this day.

Some, like Greg Maddux, showed signs of life while in Chicago, others played most of their careers in Chicago, and still others were associated with the team for, in one case, a matter of hours.

In any event, as we get ready for the 2009 season and the final spring cuts begin, let's take a look at some players I wish I could have seen play in a Cubs uniform longer than they did.

Some current players that aren't going to make an appearance include Dontrelle Willis because I need more than one season to care.

Ricky Nolasco of the Marlins might be on this list in a few years, he's not on this one.

I did not, however, make any considerations for the Japanese league records set by Tuffy Rhodes, sorry.
