    Jimmy Ryan is on the list. Bill Lange ahead of....Bill Nicholson? Not really seeing that. Mark Grace ahead of HOFer Frank Chance?? Don't really see that one either. Charlie Root won over 200 games for the Cubs but only had a 111 ERA+

    I think however you qualify players at each position led to your omission of Ernie Banks, since he split his time between shortstop and first base. Banks played slightly more time at first base but he played in his prime as a shortstop so I would replace Dahlen with Banks.

    Cubs all time 25 man roster

    C: Gabby Hartnett, Johnny Kling
    1B: Cap Anson, Frank Chance
    2B: Ryne Sandberg, Billy Herman
    3B: Ron Santo, Stan Hack
    SS: Ernie Banks, Joe Tinker
    LF: Billy Williams
    CF: Hack Wilson, Jimmy Ryan
    RF: Sammy Sosa, Bill Nicholson
    SP: Fergie Jenkins, Rick Reuschel, Mordecai Brown, Clark Griffith, Pete Alexander
    RP: Lee Smith, Bruce Sutter, Carlos Marmol, Don Elston, Dutch Leonard

    How many games would this team win against 2016 competition if all of these Cubs players were together in their Cubs prime?

    The way I see it is the starting rotation would be the best in baseball with easily the best bullpen. The lineup far and away the best in baseball. Excellent bench as well. All that said 120 wins should be possible.
