This morning I listened to Chet Coppock and Bruce Levine's Hot Stove Show on ESPN 1000. Levine reported something that I am not real sure of why or how. We all know that JH has interest in adding another starting pitcher. Levine real quickly mentioned the name of former Cub starter and soon to be 38 year old Jon Lieber.
Last season for the Phillies Lieber pitched in 14 games, 12 of those were starts. He went 3-6 with a 4.73 ERA and a 1.449 WHIP. In July Lieber underwent season ending surgery to repair a ruptured tendon in his left foot.
In 2001 Lieber had his best season as a professional going 20-6 for the Cubs. He was the last Cub pitcher to win 20 games and that was a long time ago.
Al Yellon is reporting the Cubs have dealt Angel Pagan back to the Mets for two prospects.
