Cubs Eyeing Lieber?

Here's a rumor of mild interest.  1060West relays a Bruce Levine radio report in which Jon Lieber is mentioned as a possible target for the Cubs.  Lieber won 20 games for the Cubs in 2001, but went down with Tommy John surgery the following year.  Getting Lieber from the Pirates for Brant Brown in '98 was a nice move by Ed Lynch.

At the right price I think Lieber could be a capable fifth starter for a lot of National League clubs.  I wouldn't expect him to demand two years, but you never know.  The Mets, Reds, Royals, and Rangers may also be considering Lieber.
