The guy walks nobody. In his career he has walked 4.5% of batters faced. Maddux has walked 4.9% in his career. Over the last two years, though, his BAA is .292 and he's surrendered 34 HRs in 246 innings.

Good for them. Hopefully they'll trade him to a contender like they did Maddux when their season tanked. So, April 30.

Maybe he'll become effective again and then give up another homer to Maggs in the ASG.

He won twenty games with them once when they were awful...he was a good pitcher there for awhile.

So this explains why I saw a bunch of Cub fans lining up on LaSalle Street today.......

Great move for the Cubs, absolutely low-risk high-reward type move. It's like a Wade Miller-type move but if this one works out it's a much higher reward seeing as Lieber is the king of control.

The headline in my newspaper this morning said, I think, "Cubs add Lieber to an already deep staff."

So, I ask you. Are they deep because they have, according to Lou, 7 or 8 possible starters, or are they deep because that's what happens when you pile more **** on top of ****?

The Tribune website "The Cubs Last 20 Game Winner Returns".

They're right, but you have to love their spin.
