Jennings, lugo and Church

Im back after a couple days of Hell! The flu is a bad thing.. anyways down to the rumors..

Intresting idea from mlbtraderumors.com

Calm down, this is a family trade rumor site. I am referring to Steve Phillip's latest, found via RotoWorld.
The idea: Jason Jennings to the Cubs; Jacque Jones, Carlos Marmol, Paul Maholm to the Rockies; Brad Hawpe to the Pirates.
If this one is legit,
Dan O'Dowd lied to Brad Hawpe's agent.

I would do this one in a heart beat.. especially if we decide to get another left handed bat plus lets face it we need pitching


The next rumor is from the Daily Herald-

One of the more interesting whispers around the winter meetings was that the Giants may be willing to deal lefty Noah Lowry, who was 7-10 this year but is 26-23 lifetime. If so, Lowry will draw big interest around baseball.
The Giants already may lose Jason Schmidt to free agency, so they no doubt will be looking for a lot in return for Lowry.
As of now, it’s doubtful Julio Lugo will be coming to the Cubs. Lugo seemingly would prefer to play shortstop, and Cubs officials believe he’ll get an offer to start at short from another club. The Cubs would envision Lugo as a center fielder, with Alfonso Soriano playing right. However, Lugo bats right-handed, and the Cubs are desperate for left-handed bats.

I have mixed emotions about Lowry, no Doubt the Giants would want the world, im glad the lugo rumor are going away the whole thing just never made since to me.


Washington Post: "But as baseball's winter meetings began Monday, the Nationals were trying to drum up a market for Church, hoping to find a team willing to part with a prospect -- preferably a pitcher -- in return for the 28-year-old who has only 527 major league at-bats. Potential suitors include Detroit, Pittsburgh, Houston and the Chicago Cubs."

I think Ryan Church is going to be a soild outfielder but he doesnt fit into our win now attitude, would be good off the bench tho.
