Cubs and Floyd very close...

As you might have read on message boards, other sites etc.. The cubs are close to signing Floyd.. Thanks to a emailer to sending me this from espn insider.. so here it is-

From rumor central:Close with CubsDec 14 - Cliff Floyd continues to move closer to a deal with the Chicago Cubs, according to's Jerry Crasnick.Floyd, a Chicago native, has made no secret of his desire to play for the Cubs. He has previous ties to general manager Jim Hendry (who recruited him at Creighton University) and special assistant Gary Hughes (who drafted him in Montreal in 1991).The Seattle Mariners had an interest in Floyd, who hit .244 with 11 homers in 97 games for the Mets last season, but filled their left-handed DH void when they acquired Jose Vidro in a trade with Washngton.

I really want to see Floyd in a cubbie uniform.. doing this gives you great power off the bench and the option to platoon with Murton or trade Jones.. This is a great move, now all we have to do is wait til its official!
