Here Come the RUMORS.....

- The Indians are looking to upgrade their offense, especially the corners of the outfield and infield. The Indians have already contact and had preliminary discussions with the Cubs about Carlos Pena, Aramis Ramirez, Marlon Byrd, and even Alfonso Soriano. The Indians said they would be able to add payroll but taking on a “significant” salary at the deadline is not in the cards. So in the case of Soriano and Ramirez I think the Cubs would have to chip in quite a bit of cash. On the Cubs side, team officials confirm the talks and one source said the Cubs have interest and are asking about Lonnie Chisenhall and/or Carlos Santana in a deal for their power bats.

- The Tigers are looking for pitching help and are targeting Ryan Dempster, Matt Garza, and Carlos Zambrano.

- The Giants are looking for bats and maybe looking at Pena or Ramirez to fill that need. The Cubs have scouted Brandon Belt and Madison Bumgardner in the past few weeks.

- Speaking of the Giants, there is a rumor that a Zito and Rowand for Soriano and Byrd were discussed during the All-star break.

- Brian Cashman could be a serious candidate for the Cubs GM job if Hendry is let go.

- The Cubs have been scouting the Rays entire system. Rumors say the Cubs like Jeremy Hellickson, Alex Torres, and Matt Moore.

Until Next Time..

Man i visit your site daily and wish you posted more. All i can say is no one should hold their breath thinking this team is going to make any moves. It's not going to happen. Zero wiggle room in almost all of the dead weight we need gone. We're going to pay more money to get ride of this tools verses paying the contracts in full. Cubs brass needs to clean house and start OVER. It's the only way to get people to start going back to the games.

This is no rumor, it's real news live. The cubs are next to last in win and lost record. So they would get the 2nd draft pick. If the cubs keep this team together to the end of the year they could get the first draft pick. Yes they stink that bad. But if they make trades and bring up Jackson,Lahair,
Gonzalez,Guab,Maine and Flaherty, then all bets are off. They could finally win 3 in a row or worse they could win 10 in a row.
