No, not from me.

From ESPN.com's Jayson Stark, buried at the bottom of his "Rumblings and Grumblings" column:

... if anyone wants a bat, the Cubs have stepped up efforts to deal Jacque Jones in the wake of the decision to keep Felix Pie in the big leagues.

Jones is a decent complementary player and I don't mind having him here, but if he can bring, for example, some bullpen help or a fifth-starter candidate or some lower-level prospects that can help restock the future pitching pipeline, I'm all for it.

There, that ought to give you all something to talk about on this off-day.
