Here you go, I just got a tip from an anonymous emailer. The Cubs have been in fact scouting many teams. Which is not really uncommon, all clubs have scouts checking out games. But what my emailer had to say was pretty interesting, here it is-
I have a source that says the Cub's scouts have been to 3 Braves games. The Houston, Washington, and Toronto games. All 3 of those games had Renteria starting. My source says that the Chicago Cubs are trying to swing a deal that would send Renteria to the Cubs. The deal would likely send Jones and Izturis and a pitcher to Atlanta for Edgar. The Cubs are extremely impressed with Pie and want to give him the chance to play everyday in RF for Chicago. If it doesn't work out with Pie they have Floyd who could take over in RF for him.
If this in fact is true and does happen kudos to the emailer and I would love to get his name. The deal does make alot of since besides the fact that I don't see ATL needing another guy in the OF. I don't know how Jones fits there, now Izzy would obviously take the place of Renteria, and the pitcher pry would give them depth since Hampton got hurt but the just signed Redman to a deal so I don't know how that fits. It will be interesting to see how this works out and if its true. I honestly don't see how it can work with Atlanta but stranger things have happened.
