Cubs Take Over Top Spot As Giants Falter

The fifth season of the .600 Club has been completed using 1904 statistics and there is a new top team. The 1907 Chicago Cubs have taken over the top spot as the previous #1, the 1905 New York Giants, faltered and finished just under .500 (80-82) and didn’t make the playoffs at the Major League level. They lost first baseman Dan McGann for the season in mid-May to injury, while catcher Frank Bowerman missed half the season with three separate injuries. Center fielder Mike Donlin had three stints on the DL during the season, while shortstop Bill Dahlen was injured
