okay, just a thought, not a rumor, hope I don't get blasted...


So as we all know the CUBS NEED another bat in this lineup.  Yes, Ramirez will come back eventually, but there is no guarantee he will swing the bat like he did for a while.  With the cubs contract situations in LF, RF, CF, 1B, 3B, they don't have a lot of options as far as trading for bats.  So what if they went after Miguel Tejada to play SS and moved Theriot to 2b.  I'm not bashing Theriot, but I think he could play a better 2b for us than our current crop of 2b and Tejada would definetly be an offensive upgrade.  Currently Tejada is hitting .355, 6hr, 33rbi, .378 obp and .521 slugging.  The RBI and BA would be leading our team.  Houston is 26-31, only 6 games out and with their history they may think they are still in it.  However, they have a need for some young pitching and that is one asset we have in the minors.  Granted I would hate to send them a couple of guys only to have them beat on us the next few years.

 

So let me have it...
