Cubs Like Cameron and Union to file Grievance?

-The Chicago Cubs are going to get rid of Bradley this off season and Mike Cameron could fill his void. The Cubs are looking to add a CF this off season and move Fukudome back to RF where he is more comfortable. The Cubs are looking for a one year guy to fill the CF void until Tyler Colvin is ready and Cameron could fill that void. He has been a good clubhouse guy and a leader for the Cubs.

Another inexpensive stopgap they should consider is Marlon Byrd, Andruw Jones, Mark Kotsay, or even Randy Winn.

- The players union may file a grievance for Milton Bradley because of this suspension.

New name. The Chicago "Stop-Gaps" fits a little better I think. Fukudome is a joke. Cameron is a joke. I HATED Bradley but at least he had the possibility of an upside.

Get rid of:
-Lee (While he now is attractive, he's shown he hits in years with no pressure and out of contention, perfect time to get rid of him)
-Zambrano (Need I say more, a lot of money for a pitcher that CAN'T Be an ace)
-Fukudome (BUST explains it pretty well)
-Soriano (Lazy, Probably older than his file says, will not adjust to laying off of sliders in the dirt, can't steal bases anymore)
-Obviously Bradley but who is going to want him, that's just the truth of the matter.
Cameron and all those other players you listed will just set them back another year. Just because they are cheaper and would be given incentive-laden deals doesn't mean they will produce and WIN. Trade some of the so called "stars" and actually get some talent in return.
I love you Cubbies, but the decisions that have been made in the last 2 years have been absolutely brutal.

I clicked on the Burke and Coleman story. Minor league player and pitcher of the year. And to the right were the minor league stats.
But i have never heard of Cubs DSL1 and Cubs DSL2 before. Does anyone know where these teams play?

I'm not sure that the Cubs need to add another 150 strikeout/year, .250 hitter, even if he has some power and fields well ...

I still want Dunn in RF next year.

Chi Trib suggesting Bradley for Rowand. I would be cool with that.

But that would most certainly bring an end to Reed Johnson's time here.
