All-Time Lineups Matchup No. 7: Battle of Chicago

By January 29, 2012

Follow me on:

It's time for the battle of the Windy City in our All-Time Lineups series, which matches up the best to play at each position in any one season in team history. They are both teams with long histories, but few titles. In fact the White Sox and Cubs have combined for one championship in the last 94 years.

But even without a lot of success, there's still Hall of Famers all over both lineups.

*-And to be fair for the matchup, we added one player to the roster for the Cubs, so they have a DH. (There is no DH on their official all-time lineup.)

Who would win in this matchup? (As always, click the team name for the full lineups, stats and arguments.)


  1. Rogers Hornsby 2B (1929, .380-39-149)
