Kaplan: Fukudome, Figgins, and Roberts on wish list. Cubs pushing hard for all three!

David Kaplan said minutes ago that the Cubs primary targets right now are Roberts, Figgins, and signing Fukudome. He said the Cubs would like to aquire all three players and all three could be cubs before the end of the week. Hendry recently had lunch with Andy and they discussed Roberts in a trade. There is also a rumor going around that the Angels, Cubs, and O's are discussing a three team trade that would send Figgins and Roberts to the Cubs. It makes alot of since to me. No word on what the Angels or O's would want in return but here is what I think is going to happen-

Cubs get Roberts and Figgins
O's get Pie, Marshall, Ervin Santana, Howie Kendrick, Gallagher, and Prior
Angels get Tejeda

The O's maybe want more than that, I could see the Cubs giving up Hill for Roberts and Figgins in a deal. Basically the Angels are getting Tejeda for Kendrick, Figgins, and Santana which is a fair deal for both and the Cubs are getting Figgins and Roberts for Pie, Prior, Marshall, and Gallagher which is also fair. The O's might one or two more prospects tho like Veal or Epatt tho. The 3 way deal is really just a rumor right now and this is just a guess on what players I think would get a deal like this done.
