Cubs Trivia:

Which Cubs pitcher threw a complete-game, five-hitter on September 23, 1908, with a dislocated tendon in his pitching forearm?

Haha...I actually know about this. It was the same game as Merkle's Boner iirc. No idea what the guys' name is, but remember reading about it.

EDIT: I'm sure it wasn't Mordecai Brown...so let's just go with the name I remember from the previous trivia question regarding1908. Is it Orval Overall?
And that's a bad miss...

Of course it was Dick Tidrow using a different name (I now see Tidrow as an immortal in the mode of The Highlander - "THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE" and that man is Dick) when the tendon was torn he simply used a strain of his mustache hair. Seriously puppet you must find some trivia that doesn't have the answer of Dick Tidrow.

Ed Reulbach, who was my first guess before looking at BR and spouting Andy Coakley.

Reulbach, Overall, Brown...what was the other starter's name?

I want to say it was something like Plasterer or Painter...can't remember, but that's probably who it is if it isn't Reulbach.
And that's a bad miss...

Interesting note: in 1908, an ERA of 4.22 (which we would gladly take out of someone like Randy Wells) earned you a nifty ERA+ of 56.
Marmol and his 4.01 ERA last year had a 98 ERA+, Casey Coleman at 6.40 had a 61 ERA+.

Pfiester, Fraser and Lundgren all had 15 or more starts, while Coakley and Kroh had 3 and 1. So the answer is somewhere in this message.

So the only lefty in the rotation that year, Jack Pfiester.
