It was the second good outing Liebs has had in the 2004 playoffs. The Cubs stole Jon Lieber from the Pirates for Brant Brown. This was probably the best move Ed Lynch made as GM of the Cubs. Lieber pitched very good for the Cubs for 3-1/2 seasons. 2001 was his "career year" That year Lieber went 20-6 in 34 starts, he had a 3.80 ERA in 232.1 IP, 226 H, 104 R, 98 ER, 25 HR, 41 BB, 148 SO.
