Cubs make Floyd offer? Hendry getting head start?

According to mlb4u.com-

Cliff Floyd-There is mutual interest with Baltimore. Mets have made him an offer to re-sign and he is mulling it over. Tigers, Athletics, Dodgers, Mariners are all interested. Cubs have made him offer and were believed to be his most likely suitor. The Athletics are in serious talks with him and he could sign a deal with them at the Meetings.... The source of this rumor was Ken Rosenthal.

This is a good signing, as said in my previous post the cubs will need to to get a back up 1st baseman and a lefty, who better than Floyd, i have always liked floyd and when heathy he is a great hitter.. In my opinion the only way he wouldnt come to chicago is because of money or if we in fact didnt offer him a deal... he is a Chicago native and would love to play for the cubs he has stated.. I know i would welcome him with open arms.. great platoon for murton!!!

------------------------------------------------------------

Jim Hendry decided it would be nice to get to Orlando a day early, this according to Bruce Levine.. He arrived in Flordia this afternoon, hopefully to get his ducks in a row.

The spectulation is to talk to Lilly's agent before the Winter Meetings actually start.. This to me is pretty curious.. could Hendry pull off another big signing and/or possiable trade before the meetings even start??? or maybe he just wanted to get there early to set up his plan.. who really knows... My gut feeling is something will be announced tomarrow, either a trade or signing of some sort.. but thats my feelings, i could be wrong.

I would like to see the Cubs sign Floyd. He is a good left-handed bat and plays hard whenever he gets on the field. If he can stay healthy, he could be a very strong player for us, whether it be as a pltoon partner for Murton, a replacement for Jones, or a left-handed bat off the bench.

i have news for you i donty know where to post it but here it is.... i know u want lofton so..... "Kenny Lofton, who has been with eight teams the last six seasons, could be coming back for a second stint with the Cubs. A major-league source indicated Saturday the Cubs are working to sign him. Lofton is 39 but helped the Dodgers reach the playoffs last year, hitting .301 and stealing 32 bases"

I do see Floyd coming as a bench player or platooning with murton.. especially if Jones is delt then i say Nixon or Floyd will be in a cubbie uniform.
