    ~Dallas Green 1934–2017 (Cubs GM 1982-1987) Dallas Green may have been a pretty good judge of talent (he brought Maddux, Palmeiro, Sandberg, Dawson, Grace, Smith, Moyer, Dunston, Sutcliffe, et al to the team), and he may have been gotten the Cubs as close to the World Series as anyone else did ...

    ~Leon Durham 1957– (Cubs 1981-1988) Of course, his real name was Leon, but it was hard to be named Durham without getting the nickname Bull. No Cubs fan will ever forget him.

    ~Dickie Noles 1956 (Cubs 1982-1984, 1987) He was one of Dallas Green’s favorites, and the Cubs got him from the Phillies along with Keith Moreland shortly after Green arrived in Chicago.
