Lieber a Cub!
Former Cub and 20 game winner Jon Lieber is back with the Cubs. He signed a 1 year 3.5 million dollar contract. This a low risk move for the Cubs. They add depth to there starting pitching and also may make it easier to trade Gallagher, Marshall, Dempster, or Marquis in a deal. This move makes other moves a lot easier, while I still believe the Cubs need another top tier starter I am OK with this. Now the Cubs can move onto more outfield help and middle infield help. I honestly think the Cubs should target Figgins along with Roberts now that we have our pitcher in place. Either one would really improve the lineup. Lets just hope Jimbo is not done yet!
