Today in Cubs History: March 27

Quote:
2002
» In need of relief help, the Cubs trade RHP Julian Tavarez and three prospects to the Marlins for reliever Antonio Alfonseca and RHP Matt Clement. The three prospects -- C Ryan Jorgensen, and pitchers Jose Cuetro and Dontrelle Willis -- are rated among the Cubs' top 20 prospects. Alfonseca, nicknamed El Pulpo (octopus) because he was born with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot, will replace the injured Tom Gordon.

1993
The Cubs put 2B Ryne Sandberg (broken hand) and SS Shawon Dunston (lower back rehab) on the DL. The two will miss opening day for the first time in nine years together

1986
» Major league baseball's Rules Committee votes to change the DH rule for the World Series, allowing a DH to be used in all games played in the AL club's home park. Since 1976, the DH had been used in all games in alternating years.

1984
» The Phillies trade outfielders Gary Matthews and Bob Dernier and pitcher Porfi Altamirano to the Cubs for reliever Bill Campbell and catcher Mike Diaz. Matthews was the MVP of the NLCS last season, while Campbell led the National League with 82 appearances. Dernier will win a Gold Glove in CF for Chicago and help them reach the playoffs. His 45 steals will be the most by a Cub since 1907.

1902
» The Chicago Daily News uses the name "Cubs" (both with and without the quotes) in print, but the Colts moniker will occasionally be used for another three years.
March 27, 1902 Chicago Daily News becomes first-known entity to pen "Cubs" nickname as team moniker.
I guess this would make it the unofficial birthday of the "Cubs" Happy Birthday Cubs fans everywhere!

Good stuff. Today is the date we lost Dontrelle for a scrub reliever and Matt Clement. I might be in the minority here, but I think that trade did work out for us. Clement was a key in the 2003 season. Wood, Prior, Clement, Zambrano was a pretty serious top 4.

Personally, I'm not big on Willis. He had a breakout year and hasn't done a whole lot to back it up. Possibly a tinge of overratedness there.

I do think the trade in '84 worked out for us.

Hey and we officially got our name... Nice. What where all the prior? I know we were the White Stockings & The Orphans, but wasn't there another one in there?

I don't really see how that's CUBS history.. but interesting nonetheless.
