Again, anyone for Mark Teahen?

I found this out on MLBtraderumors.com:

"Orlando Hudson would like to play for the Royals, but currently they cannot afford him even at a likely salary under $5MM.  They could free up most of the cash by releasing Mark Teahen, but Rosenthal's source says the Royals are "unwilling to make such a move." ..."

Here is the MLBTraderumors link  http://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2009/02/rosenthal-on-hu.html

And the original Rosenthal link:

It seems that Teahen isn't being offered a starting job anywhere, though he may have a shot at winning the KC 2B job.  I'm not sure what type of fielder he'd make there but I can speculate that he probably won't be very good if he's just picking it up this year. 

 

Anyway, I think we all feel that the Cubs still need a backup at 3B and 1B.  I can't imagine that Teahen would cost all that much in terms of talent, but whether the Cubs would want to pay the $3M for a backup like this is another matter.   I'd still like to see the Cubs add Garciaparra as 1) he wouldn't cost as much from a salary perspecitve, 2) he certainly wouldn't cost any talent, and 3) he can play SS, but I'd be really happy with Teahen instead.
