If the Cubs intend to trade Walker

Who are they trading him to?

One team bandied about in Todd Walker discussions tends to be the Texas Rangers.  So that got me thinking -- what if the Cubs intend to trade Walker and Kerry Wood to the Rangers?  Who could they get in return?

I think Soriano is a shoo-in for that deal, which frightens me because his OBP is Neifi-like.  But that probably wouldn't be enough.  But the Rangers have a good young pitcher by the name of Chris Young, who had a 4.26 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP this year --and remember where he plays his home games.  Would anybody here make a Wood/Walker for Soriano/Young?  I'm not entirely sure I would, but would the Cubs, provided Texas picked up Kerry Wood's contract?  Young was named as the first-team starting pitcher in the all-rookie team by Baseball America.

Just thinking in text.  There's been a lot of speculation that Walker won't be with the Cubs on Opening Day.
