Cubs Naughty and Nice List 2010

It is Christmas Eve!!! At Everything Cubs blog, that means it is time for a post that has become a staple here during the holiday season, the Cubs Naughty and Nice List! Click here for the list from last year. Let us dig in...

  • Ron Santo- for being the world's biggest Cubs fan. Nobody deserves to be on the nice list more than Ronnie. Just a flat out nice guy.
  • Kerry Wood- for taking a huge hometown discount to come back to the Cubs.
  • Jim Hendry- for bringing Kerry back.
  • Tyler Colvin- for earning a spot in the outfield with his hot bat during the season.
  • WGN Radio- for the way they did a great job honoring Ron and for bringing back a weeknight sports show, which debuted last night!
  • Pat Hughes- for his well deserved five year extension.
  • Ryne Sandberg- for coming to Santo's funeral even though he is no longer a member of the organization.
  • Mike Quade- for doing such a great job once he took over for Lou Piniella.
  • Starlin Castro- for putting up a great batting average throughout his rookie season.
  • Marlon Byrd- for his "gamer" mentality and the 100% effort that he brings each day. Plus, he represented the Cubs in the All Star game with a spectacular catch.
  • Carlos Silva- for a solid first half, which was more than enough to make the Milton Bradley trade worth while.
  • Derrek Lee- for being a fan favorite for years in Chicago.
  • Ryan Dempster- for being a leader and a great guy.
  • Carlos Marmol- for all those Ks.
  • Oneri Fleita- for the progress the farm system has made this season.
  • Chris Archer- for his fantastic season on the farm.
  • Andre Dawson- for being patient and finally earning a spot in Cooperstown.
  • The BBWAA Voters- for finally getting it right and putting the Hawk into the Hall.


  • Jim Hendry- for paying Carlos Pena $10 million.
  • Rudy Jaramillo- for his failure to improve the Cubs offense, even though it is probably not his fault.
  • Larry Rothschild- for leaving the Cubs for the Yankees.
  • The Veterans Committee- for failing to elect Ron Santo to the Hall of Fame while he was alive.
  • The Hall of Fame- for forcing Dawson to wear an Expos' cap against his wishes.
  • Randy Wells- for his sophomore slump on the hill.
  • John Grabow- for being injured or ineffective all season.
  • Aramis Ramirez- for his .241 batting average.
  • Ryan Theriot- for saying that he is finally on the right side of the Cubs/Cards rivalry.
  • Jeff Samardzija- for his 8.38 ERA in seven games.
  • Carlos Zambrano- for his temper tantrum at U.S. Cellular Field.

Once again, have a happy holidays! Go Cubs Go!
