The Opening Day Cubs of the 2010s

Today we get current, as we look at this decade.

We start with the remnants of the Lou Piniella Cubs and finish with the World Champions.

Anthony Rizzo has the longest active streak, five years.  None of the other current players has started on opening day more than twice.  I'd like to think that Rizzo, Baez, Russell, and Bryant will be together for the next several years.

Contreras is the fourth catcher over that past four years.  I'm thinking he's starting a streak too.

If the starting pitcher flips between Lester, Arrieta, and Hendricks over the next couple years, I'm ok with that, too.
