Fergie Jenkins Was So Close to Being on the 1984 Cubs

On this day in 1984 the Cubs released Fergie Jenkins, then a 41-year old.  That ended the career of the future Hall of Famer.

The Cubs season of 1984 was almost a magical one.  Sounds familiar doesn't it.  It was frustrating to hear fans talk about how good the Cubs will be in 2016.  The roster on paper doesn't mean much when it comes to winning the World Series.  Just ask the Marlins and Twins who have both managed to win two World Series titles without rosters that seemed ready to win.

Who would have not been on the 1984 Cubs if Jenkins lasted another year?
