Fishy Cubs

Wednesday's "Tale from a Bad Century" is about the year the Cubs were actually run by a man who came from the seafood business.

Unfortunately for William Walker, he only got to run the Cubs for the 1934 season. If only he had run them when the following players were Cubs...

*Snapper Kennedy (1902)

*Bobby Sturgeon (1940-1947)

*Catfish Metkovich (1953)

*Riverboat Smith (1959)

*Steve Trout (1983-1987)

*Steve Lake (1983-1986, 1993)

*Antonio "The Octypus" Alfonseca (2003-2004)

Am I missing anyone?
