Following Former-Chicago Cubs in the World Series: Who To Root For

With the MLB postseason coming to a head in a clash between American League champion Houston Astros, and National League champion Philadelphia Phillies, the reach of the Chicago Cubs player tree is sure to be involved.

As perennial contenders for much of the late 2010s, the Cubs had shipped out many of their former stars in recent years, but oddly enough — besides Martín Maldonado — not a single one ended up on the Astros.

Maldonado played four games from the Cubs in 2019, but was shipped out for Tony Kemp just two weeks after he was acquired from the Kansas City Royals. Other than Maldonado, not one reliever, nor even a bench player who once played on the Cubs can be found on the Astros roster.
