Updating Stumpy, 1997
Stumpy 1997 is a little out of date too. I've got to get him updated......
In 2006, Juan Pierre had 204 hits for the Cubs.
Myers' record was tied by Trevor Hoffman in 1998, and then passed by John Smoltz in 2002 and Eric Gagne in 2003, as they each posted 55 saves.
The 2001 Seattle Mariners, led by skipper Lou Piniella, tied the record in 2001. Like the 1906 Cubs and the Lou-led 2007 and 2008 Cubs, the Mariners didn't seal the deal in the post-season.
Sammy Sosa is now the franchise leader in home runs, with 545.
Stumpy is now current and all is well with the world!
