Melky Cabrera to Cubs??
According to Foxsports.com the Cubs may be a suitor for Cabrera along with Reds, Royals, Pirates, and Braves. If the Cubs get Melky he would improve the defense in the outfield and add speed. He is a good switch hitter with plenty of pop in his bat. In 286 games in the Major Leagues he hit .275 with a .340 OBP ,15 homers and 123 RBI. The deal would likely cost the Cubs some prospects that includes Pie or Colvin and some pitching prospects like Veal, Gallagher, Marshall, or maybe Hart. I think Colvin, Veal, and Marshall could get Melky. He would fit nicely as a #2 hitter. It will be interesting if anything comes of this rumor.
