Former Cubs pitcher diagnosed with

Sad news to report -- former Chicago Cubs pitcher Anthony "AY" Young has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor according to multiple reports.

Young spent two years with the Cubs (1994, 1995) and was 7-10 with 3.87 ERA with two saves. For his major league career which also included his start with the Mets and a stint with the Astros, he had 3.89 ERA with 20 saves and 245 strikeouts.

He was most famous for losing 27 consecutive decisions between 1992 and 1993 which still is the longest streak in MLB history. His career is one of the most bizarre in major league history because he was very unlucky with all the defeats despite his respectable 3.89 career ERA.

CubsHQ were like to give our best wishes to 51-year old Young as he faces this diagnosis.
