Another option for trading Bradley


I have thrown out mutliple suggestions to trade Bradley in different threads, some of them could still be available to the Cubs. This is one more, and I wanted to see what others thought. Michael Young and Julio Borbon of the Texas Ranges would be my targets, I would offer Milton Bradley and 2 prospects 1 being Josh Vitters and the other could be a mid level pitcher. This would have us taking on a little more payroll this year and 2 extra years of a contract. I know this is not ideal but nothing seems to be at this point. Maybe we also kick in 1 million this year and next year at the most to sweeten the deal. This could give the Rangers the chance to resign Byrd. Young could play 2B, SS & 3B, I know his defense has declined a little but I think he would be a perfect fit offensively hitting 2nd or 5th in our lineup. Not many people know much about Borbon but he is 23 and I believe major league ready, he bats left and has plenty of speed to burn. Last year in 46 games he had 157 at bats hitting .312, 4hr, 20rbis, 19sb, .376obp. He may be a little raw but I like what I have seen. In getting Young, if Borbon struggles a little you could put Baker in RF and slide Fukudome to CF to give him days off from time to time.
