Man, I had the same two reactions. I don't remember either of those guys in a Cubs uniform.
This is incredibly sad and tragic so I obviously don't have any intention of making light of it. But until someone posted a picture of him on twitter in a Cubs uniform, I had no recollection of him being a Cub. So I looked him up on Baseball-Reference and it turns out that he spent about 2 months with the Cubs in 2009 after we traded Joey Gathright to Baltimore for him. My reaction to seeing that was: "Joey Gathright played for the Cubs?!?!"
