The Cubs join the Angels, O's, and Cards in the pursuit of Greene. Greene recently turned down an extension with the Pads because he wants to either play on the east coast or in a hitter friendly park ( Wrigley). The Pads are looking to trade him for a young corner outfielder. The Padres really like Matt Murton and Reggie Willits. I can see the Cubs trying to land him instead of Roberts. Greene provides power and a good glove and would be an upgrade over Theriot. The Cubs could also flip Greene to the O's to get Roberts but I don't see that happening. The Pads would likely want Cedeno or Eric Patterson along with a pitching prospect and Murton. I also wouldn't mind a three way deal with the Angels and somehow us getting Figgins but that is kind of far fetched.
In other notes the Cubs have avoided arbitration with Weurtz signing him to a one year deal worth 860,000 bucks.
