Day 2 Rumors and Notes....

Here are some rumors and news from Day 2-

- The Cubs have an interest in former Nationals/Yankees/Marlins 1st baseman Nick Johnson. Johnson has a .401 OBP but has been plagued with injuries throughout this career. He has not complied over 140 games in a season since 2006 and is 33 years old. Having said that if Hendry goes cheap then Johnson would be a nice pickup. Although the Cubs might need to pick a platoon partner giving his injury woes.

- Jim Hendry and the Cubs are very interested in Kerry Wood at the right price. Rumors said Wood would like to come back to Chicago.

- Jim Hendry laid out the Cubs needs this off-season: Starting Pitcher, 1st baseman, and a reliever.

- Aram exercised his option as expected.

- Chris Archer will likely be added to the 40-man roster and may even break camp with the Cubs.

- Hendry and Quade view Colvin as an everyday player next season.

Until Next Time…

Gonzalez is offically available, Hoyer said so. The question is do we have enough to get him?

Is there any reason not to visit DLee for first base? He still has a gold glove and hits LH. If he is health and is available at the right price he would be perfect on a two year deal. He also is a great leader and a quality person. If he is healthy, I think he can still hit 25 home runs and drive in 75-95 runs. He had his thump operated on a couple of weeks ago and should be good to go come training camp. He is a lot better choice than some I have been seeing.
