Cubs Trivia:

Which Cubs pitcher led the National League in games started and innings in 2001, while also posting 20 wins?

Congrats Twinkie-Man!

Yes, I was a big fan of his as well. Not flashy, but very steady.

I seem to recall Jon Lieber handing out two-hitters like they were candy that year.

Unfortunately, so did the Cubs' hitters.

ZING!

I recall he ended the Reds record streak of not being shut out in a game

It seems like the Cubs have always made out pretty well with players we get from the Pirates.

Hmm... Lieber, Aram, Lofton... who else am I missing?

Not really, the most recent trades have sucked: John Grabow, Matt Lawton, Tom Gorzelanny, and Randall Simon are the most recent acquisitions and they all failed to make a significant impact with the team (unless you count Grabow spraying gasoline all over the field an impact)

There's the history of transactions betwixt the two teams

Oooh, neat line. Man, every time I think I know where to find all that Baseball Reference offers, something else blows my mind. Rad.

You're right. I guess I was thinking of Lofton, Simon, and Ramirez. That trade was unbelievable. I still don't understand why we didn't keep Lofton after that year. I really liked that guy.

He was picked up as a free agent so he doesn't count.
