- Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times chimes in today saying the Cubs have the payroll flexibility to add a "mid-level" player. Gordon suggest players such as George Sherrill and Chad Qualls. The Cubs could also look at a catcher to help Koyie Hill but Lou likes how Hill is doing behind the plate and have a good backup in Jake Fox.
The players I have heard that the Cubs are interested in is an upgrade at 2nd base and have been linked to Mark Teahen, Dan Uggla, and now Freddy Sanchez according to ML sources.
Either way look for the Cubs to make a move before July 31st.
- Bradley's 2011 option is vested with last nights plate appearance. Bummer!
- Carrie Muskat talked to Lou and he says he still wants a left-handed power bat. That must dig at Milton Bradley! The Cubs should make a move for Brad Hawpe, Adam Dunn, or a player with the caliber.
- According to ChicagoCubsOnline.com the Cubs are also interested in Joe Beimel and John Grabow. Either one would be a good addition to this pen but I still think the Cubs need a power lefty bat before they add pen help.
