The Opening Day Cubs of the 1990s

After a little break for the start of the season, let's get back to the opening day lineups from the different decades.  Today we look at the 1990s.

Despite having Grace, Sandberg, Sosa, and Maddux, the Cubs of the '90s were not very good.  90 wins and a wild card spot in 1998 was the best they could manage.

Three-fourths of the infield was fairly consistent, with Grace, Sandberg, and Dunston.  In fact, this is the only tile we'll see that has the same player in each of the ten seasons , Mark Grace at first base.  Sosa started for eight of the ten seasons.  But otherwise, it was a revolving door at most positions.
