Ready to talk trades.....


I have been thinking about what type of move the Cubs could make that would improve the team next year and may even help this year. What if we went to Seattle with a Fukudome, Theriot, 3 mil 2010 & 3 mil 2011 for Chone Figgins.

Reason why I like this for the Cubs.

Figgins can play 2nd base everyday and be a defensive upgrade for us, he can play 3rd if needed, is a leadoff hitter that knows how to steal bases. Signed thru 2013 with 9 mil option for 2014.

Colvin gets more at bats and we can really see what we have with him. Nady can get a spot start here & there. Even Baker could maybe get a start in RF some and Colvin shift to left to give Soriano a rest.

We are basically giving them back the Silva money, so nothing lost.

Maybe this is a pipe dream but I wanted to put it out there. Discuss away......
