I know he is aging and I know that people may have some doubts but why aren't the Cubs even considering him? From what I know of him, he has been a fairly solid starter for several years now. I have to admit, I didn't follow him much as a Phillie but he seemed solid for the Sox.
Please don't tell me that he is Jason Marquis because this answer does nothing for me.
Oh yeah, I am posting this in a diary because I felt like posting a diary and noticed that the Mets, who signed the best pitcher in the league this offseason, seem to feel he is worth talking to.
