Rockies interested in Marquis? Marquis for Taveras?Baker?

The Rockies have internally discussed acquiring Jason Marquis from the Cubs.

Marquis for Willy Taveras might interest the Rockies if the Cubs were willing to eat some salary, but the Cubs would probably just as soon stick with Kosuke Fukudome and Reed Johnson as their center field combination. MLB.com mentions Jeff Baker as a possibility to be involved. However, if the Rockies want Marquis, it shouldn't cost major league talent.


I've always kind of liked Taveras. Would he work as a leadoff hitter? Would he goof up the CF platoon of Fukudome and Johnson? Jeff Baker can give some pop from 2B: 10 HR in 102 games last year. I imagine the Cubs would have to eat a lot of salary if this were to be feasable. Nice to see some interest in Marquis though...
