There's a hot center fielder on the market that I think the Cubs should jump on and his name may sound familiar: Corey Patterson.  His name may sound familiar because he is the older brother of a former Cubs prospect by the name of Eric.  Eric was traded away to fetch the greatest change-up pitcher ever to come from the Great White North, Mr. Rich Harden!  He may be hard to pry away from the Milwaukee Brewers since he's cheap on just a minor league contract, but I think the Cubs should put together a dynamite package to blow away our division rivals.  This guy is that good!

Now I know the elder Patterson's stats from the last year may not look pretty, but he only had 30 plate appearances last year, and I think he'd really shine if given the opportunity!  He's a top prospect that I think people have given up on too early.  He's really toolsy, cuz he has run fast, thrown hard, and had some hits!  Also, I really think the Cubs need to get a little less Canadian, and Patterson's from Georgia which is just about as non-Canadian as you can get!  Not to mention he throws righty and HITS left-handed, and EVERY team can use more guys like that!  He does strike out a bit, but he really makes up for it because we need a center fielder so we can move Mr. Kosuke Fukudome back to right field.

I don't know about you all, but it's potential moves like this that make me glad to be a Cubs fan!
