Cubs Rumors.....

- Bruce Levine says the biggest name coming to the Cubs will be Adam Dunn and the biggest name leaving will be Kosuke Fukudome.

- Quade looks to be the favorite to land the Cubs manager job according to many sources. One thing is for sure is that Ryne Sandberg will not be the bench coach if he is named manager.

- Levine expects Jim to announce the Cubs next manager toward the end of October.

- Adam LaRoche is one of the few first baseman the Cubs are looking at if they lose out on Adam Dunn and Carlos Pena.

- Scrap the Mark Reynolds chatter, Levine said there is no interest in the slugger.

- Bruce also said the Cubs may move Colvin to first base and go after a left-handed hitting RF but not Crawford because he may end up just like Soriano. If the Cubs did go that route they would likely go the trade route because of the lack of power hitters in the 2011 free agent class.

- The Cubs will not trade for Adrian Gonzales this coming season, but could sign him when he becomes a free agent.

- Aramis Ramirez and Carlos Zambrano will be with the Cubs in 2011 according to Jim Hendry.

Until Next Time...

if the cubs had any plans to move colvin to first base, don't you think that they would have tried to use him there at least once or twice once they were completely out of contention? Its not like it would have been blocking another prospect from playing since nady got the bulk of the time over there. colvin to first base is a silly rumor started by bruce levine, and there is no reason to think that the cubs will try to use him there
