So every couple years or so I get one of those giant Cubs almanacs from one of my parents.  I'm going to try and post a random trivia question every Saturday to fill in the trivia void

 

Though his career record is close to .500, this pitcher finished second in the Cy Young voting in 1964 and had the highest win total since Charlie Root's 26 in 1927.

No clue. I don't know my 60's very well.

Nope!

 

Hint: He was part of the Fergie Jenkins deal

Larry Jackson because he's the only player I recall from the Fergie Jenkins deal.

(This is probably wrong.)

I thought for sure this would be Spriggs since I searched the board for this to make sure this already wasn't one and he dropped this as a random tidbit in one of his knowledge bombs.  He wound up getting drafted by the Expos in the expansion draft but subsequently retired.

Nice question! He led the league in wins that year. I know Bob Buhl was another guy who went to the Phillies in that trade. Cubs got Adolfo Phillips too.

Wait I actually got it right? Must be my lucky day or something.

Oh yeah. I vaguely remember this stuff now.
