EXcub factors in the ALCS: Jon Lieber

The Cubs have had ONE 20 Game winner since Greg Maddux did it in 1992. It ain't Kerry Wood, it ain't Mark Prior, it ain't even the great Jose Guzman...It's JON LIEBER!

Lieber was brilliant in Game 2 of the ALCS.

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.
