So many Chicago Cubs managers have led the team that it only makes sense to ask: Who is the best Chicago Cubs manager of all time? This list ranks every Chicago Cubs manager from best to worst based on your votes. So vote up your top Chicago Cubs coaches even if your favorite skippers aren't among the greatest baseball managers ever.

Frank Chance managed the Cubs from 1905-1912. Chance's Cubs won four NL pennants in 1906, 1907, 1908, and 1910, and won the only two World Series titles in franchise history. Fred Mitchell managed the Cubs to the 1918 National League Championship. Despite Mitchell's success with the Cubs, he is still not a member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.

This isn't the Baseball Hall of Fame, though. On this list of Chicago Cubs managers, you it's up to you. So  who is the greatest Chicago Cubs skipper of all time? Vote up the best Cubs coaches and downvote any manager you think contributed directly that to the MLB's longest championship drought.
