With so much talk in Cubs' camp this spring training surrounding top prospect Starlin Castro, I decided to take a look back at some of the top rookie performances in team history.
I went back as far as 1947, which was the first year that the Rookie of the Year Award was handed out. I only looked at the stats that the player posted during their rookie season when ranking them. Therefore, this may be the only list you will ever see Jerome Walton ahead of Ernie Banks.
With so much history, it is always possible that someone was over looked, and I implore you to let me know if I have excluded anyone.
