More Cub Rumors....

- The Cubs will keep their Spring Training in Mesa.

- The Tribune is saying that the Cubs are courting free agent outfielder Jonny Gomes and Gomes even confirms this.

- The Cubs are also talking to Dye and Nady but according to Levine the Cubs have now looked beyond Dye because he must decide to retire or take a part-time job and a 60% paycut to stay playing baseball.

- Levine also add that the Cubs are talking to the Jays about Jason Frasor and the Padres about Luke Gregerson as well as Heath Bell.

- He did mention Reed Johnson and Rocco Baldelli are still in the mix for the fourth outfielder spot.

- The Cubs have had talks with Kiko Calero but have "no interest at this point" according to Levine.

- Although the Cubs are looking for a righty for the outfield they are still keeping tabs on Ankiel because his price and stock continue to drop. I would not mind if the Cubs added Baldelli and Ankiel? That would be too goo to be true though.

More Later....

I like GOMEZ alot he bats .300 against lefties and has a ton of power. He could platoon with FUKUDOME. And he should come pretty cheap. KC signed ANKIEL that gives them 3 CF'ers.
