The 1984 Chicago Cubs Deal Their Way To A Division Title

The North Side of Chicago has never been renowned for baseball excellence, and the early part of the 1980s was no exception. The beloved Chicago Cubs, after finishing second in the old NL East in 1969, 1970 and 1972 had finished under .500 in each of the ensuing eleven years, including a 91-loss season in 1983. A managerial change of a series of big trades made the 1984 Chicago Cubs season one to remember.
