Thanks to MLB RUMORS-
Rowand Taking Over In Center For Dodgers?: Free agent outfielder Aaron Rowand is drawing a lot of interest from teams around the league, and his new contract is expected to be big. Although he is asking for fifteen million, one MLB executive tells me he expects the deal to top 90 million dollars. There are several teams interested in Rowand that could take on that kind of contract. The Dodgers, White Sox, Rangers, Cubs, and Astros have all made contact with Rowand, but it appears the Dodgers have the inside track because of Rowand's connections to Southern California.
The Cubs are probably just keeping there options open, this is curious tho. Hendry said he wants a high OBP OF with power and Rowand is righthanded. Plus Pie slotted to play center next year, they could move him to RF but he is more serviceable in CF. If the Cubs did acquire Rowand that means Pie could be expendable for pitching, a RF, or a shorstop. Pie for Greene has been rumored and that would make sense if the Cubs inked Rowand to a deal. This is all speculation right now, but never less it is interesting.
