Brad Hawpe?


I noticed that the Colorado Rockies released Brad Hawpe and he's now a free agent that can be signed by any team.  Looking at the numbers, I think Colorado pulled the trigger a bit prematurely.  He's less than one season removed from a 900 ops and put up nearly a 900 obs in 2008 as well.  He's 31, so he's not real young, but he should have a number of years left in him as well.   And I think he's a pretty good fit with the Cubs in that he's a right fielder and could step in for Fukudome.   He should be inexpensive as well.  (more after the Jump)

Admittedly, the primary problem that the Cubs have is trying to get rid of a few very well paid Veterans (yes, Alfonoso, I  am looking in your direction.... Carlos... don't leave the room yet) but Hawpe would be a part of the solution in a more responsible fashion than some of the other options.
