As it more and more less likely the Cubs will sign Dunn or Bradley for their right field vacancy, what other options do the Cubs have?
My favorite, trade for Nate McClouth, he can be had, however at a price. The kid has speed and could be a fixture in CF and leadoff for many years. What do you think it would take for McClouth?
Hermida....to pricey, to injury.
Burrell....to contract year driven. Too bad he every year can't be a contract year, plus, he bats from the wrong side of the plate.
Figgins...could be had with others coming to the cubs if they dealt Lee. Don't think this will happen though.
Dero....Wouldn't be as good a player as he is the current way he is used.
Abreu...to pricey, to ground bally.
Gathright, Pie, Hoffpaur...let them fight in out in the spring and stand pat with the offense this winter.
Edmonds....does he have anything left. Would be cheap, but could have the Garry Gaetti effect. (old timer, picked up off the scrap heap, has big year, then brought back only to stink it up)
