The Cubs are expected to look for a veteran, innings-eating starter this offseason instead of bidding on Cliff Lee.
The Chicago Sun-Times' Gordon Wittenmyer lists Javier Vazquez, Jake Westbrook and Kevin Millwood as possibilities. The Cubs lack stability in the rotation beyond Ryan Dempster, so any of the three would make sense. Wittenmyer suggests the Cubs would prefer to only commit one or two years to whomever they sign.
What? I would like to think Cliff Lee would eat up some quality innings.
I'm really starting to hate the new regime.
