Joey Gathright...

I saw a rumor that the Cubs were/are interested in Tampa Bay's Joey Gathright.  I looked at his stats, and in the majors he hasn't gotten much playing time in Tampa.  He does have pretty good speed, OBP in the minors, and hit for average in the minors, and he didn't strikeout much.  He has no power, but considering Pierre has no power that shouldn't really stop us.  

He could be our leadoff hitter, but he's unproven in that role. He doesn't necessarily have to be our leadoff guy if we get Furcal.  He would play center for us.  I'm doubtful this would happen because this would put 3 young guys in the lineup if Murton and Cedeno make it.

Thoughts?
