His career was obviously incredible since he was inducted into the HOF. As for his time with the Cubbies, that too was incredible. Here is a ballplayer that was so intent on getting off artificial turf that he gave the Cubs a blank check to pay him just to play on natural grass.

I would argue that he transformed the image of the Cubs as a legitimate ball club by coming to play there and I think he made the rest of the team better with is leadership and style. He would not stand for half an effort by teammates and that made the rest of the team play better.

Loved him as a Cub and I believe he still thinks of himself as a Cub no matter what MLB made him wear into the HOF. Glad to see the Ricketts reaching out to him to be more involved.

The Hawk was the man. He'll always be known for his time in Montreal, but his batting statistics say he was the best when he was with the Cubs.

Montreal: 11 years-.280/.326/.476
Chicago: 6 years-.285/.327/.507
Boston: 2 years- .260/.297/.441
Florida: 2 years- .261/.306/.430

RBI's, HR, SB were all a little lower with the Cubs than with the Expos, but that was age.

Sad that his knees were gone by the time he got to the Cubs but was still a feared hitting machine.

I couldn't believe it when I heard that they'd signed him.
