Rumor Central. Teahen, Johnson, Furcal

I know that all of these have been talked about in the past, but I figured that I would consolidate into a single fanpost all of the recent news.

Apparently, there is speculation that the Cubs are looking at Mark Teahan of the Royals as well as Ibanez. Might not be a bad deal and it might give Pie a place to flourish away from the bright lights assuming that he is part of the bait. LINK

I posted a while ago (you can delete if you want to, Al) that the Cubs might still be in the Peavy running. However, it looks like the braves might not be out of the contest just yet. LINK

However, now that the Cubs have signed Demp again, the scenario of Randy Johnson seems more likely than Peavy if they feel that they need another arm. Speculation (which is all that it is at this point) is that they are looking at Furcal as well. LINK

A little different topic, but Ryan Dempster has now apparently said that the Cubs weren't "prepared" for the playoffs. LINK

So, What would you do? Obviously, if you could get Peavy without giving up the entire farm, you would have to be interested. However, with a rotation that already includes Z, Demp, Lilly, and Harden, you are pretty stacked right there. Add Peavy to that mix and you have 5 #1 and #2 starters. Do you really need that, or are the dollars better spent somewhere else? I would lean towards a Teahan or Ibanex first, I think... You?
