Cubs considering another starter?? Offering a deal??

According to under the rumors section-

Jeff Suppan, RHSP--St. Louis Cardinals
Yankees, Phillies, Pirates, Royals, Mariners, Astros and Giants are among a dozen teams interested in him. The Cardinals are offering a 3-year, $20M deal, but are not pursuing him aggressively. The Astros and Cubs (and possibly the Giants) are offering 3-year, $30Mish deals. He is seeking 4-years, $32-40M. The Pirates are unwilling to meet his asking price, but have a made a competitive offer. Jays and Mets have mild interest. He does not planning on signing until Zito is off the market....This rumor was last updated on 04:15 PM - Dec 13, 06.

How great would be our rotation then!!! if you can get Suppan for 10 or 11 mil would be a steal in my opinion... I have always like Suppan and he is right around the plate.. Just a good pitcher.. That then gives you the option to trade Prior or let him get heathy... or even trade Hill(which i dont want to) for a center fielder(crawford please!!!).. but here would be our rotation


Thats a tough rotation!!!!
heres a link to his stats

I read on on the HOT STOVE REPORT SECTION where the Rockies may trade Willy Taveras after getting from the Astros on Monday on that the Cubs are very interested on him. Thought I would pass this information along to you.

Read (hot stove section) it says that the Rockies will trade Willy Taveras after acquiring him for the Astros on Monday and one of the teams with interest is the Cubs.
