Dexter had a very good year in 2016, but his total production a a Cub center fielder in my mind doesn't warrant making the list. #1 has to be Hack Wilson. No other Cub comes close to his stats.
#2 Andy Pafko who over nine years as a Cub had a .294 BA, was named to the NL All Star team four years in a row & twice he hit over 100 RBI's with his top being 110 in 1945 when the Cubs won the pennant. #3 was a close call between Bobby Dernier & Rick Monday, but I thought Monday was the choice for his 5 year Cub career of a .270 average, 20 home runs three times and in 1972 his .996 fielding average was best among NL center fielders.

great take and choices...I think Anthony is rating the players high from 2016 because of the 108-year title win.

Bobby Dernier probably should have been on the list

I can definitely see a case for Dernier as #3 on the list.
