If the Cubs were to make a move...

What would be the most help to the Cubs?  The Cubs clearly need help hitting right now, but I'm still convinced Jake Peavy could be a difference maker at the end of the season and in the postseason, especially with Zambrano, Harden, and Dempster sporting ERAs in the mid-4s right now.  The bullpen hasn't magically become better either.  Gregg is still spotty, and other than Guzman and Marmol, there is little in the way of consistency.  That said, the Cubs clearly need some more offense; the question is where to get it.  Would a third-baseman be a good pickup right now, even though that move only adds a bat for the two months until Ramirez comes back (meaning the trade would burn prospects for a guy who might not factor signigicantly come the postseason)?  Or would the Cubs be better served adding a second-baseman to take over for Fontenot?  Or pick up an outfielder to do something creative involving moving Soriano to second?  Or should we just stand pat and ride out the slump.
