In the last half of the 1930s, Bill Lee was on a very good Chicago Cubs starting rotation that would take the team to two National League Pennants, 1935 and 1938.  Lee was far from just a participant from 1935 to 1939, and he would have four 18 Win Seasons, including a 22 Win campaign in 1938, which was enough to lead the National League.  That year Lee would also lead the league in Earned Run Average, Shutouts, and ERA+ while also finishing second in MVP voting.  Overall, he would win 139 Games for the Cubs.
