Here's the basic rundown:
- there were 29 cards issued to Cubs players
- three players (Castro, Olt, and Rizzo) had two cards each, so a total of 26 players were represented
- two players (Donnie Murphy and Dioner Navarro) didn't play a single inning for the 2014 Cubs
- In addition to Murphy and Navarro, five other players (Barney, Hammel, Samardzija, Schierholtz, and Veras) were traded or released during the season
- That leaves 19 of the 26 still on the 40 man roster. I wonder how many will be on the team when it breaks camp in April?
- 49 different players made an appearance for the 2014 Cubs, which means only 24 of the 49 have a card...less than half....not good!
And here are the cards:
