The Cubs are interested in John Lannan


Yesterday Aaron asked if anyone wanted John Lannan. Well, at least one team might: the Chicago Cubs.

So says Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times, who reports that the Cubs have “inquired again” about his services following his demotion by the Nationals.

Lannan would help a lot of teams. He wouldn’t necessarily be worth the $5 million he makes, but he’s durable and could eat innings at a decent clip. Not a bad pickup if you don’t expect fabulousness.
