A Few Rumors...

  • Since the Fukudome signing, the rumored trade for Brian Roberts is now a top priority. As you may, or may not already know, Roberts was in the Mitchell Report. Roberts trade value could possibly take a hit. According to Phil Rogers, the Cubs could put a package of Cedeno, Patterson, or Fontenot together for Roberts, and that if Gallagher was included in a package, the possibilty of having Bedard included in the deal would not be out of the question.

  • The Mets have shown interest in Jason Marquis. A possible trade scenario could be Marquis for Endy Chavez. More of a roster dump than anything.

  • Mark Prior is no longer a Chicago Cub. This is weird to say after all these years of hoping he would return to form. There is still a possibility he could resign with the team, if he doesn't get the offers he is wanting. I wouldn't be suprised to see him come crawling back.

  • The Cubs have announced that Kosuke Fukudome will wear #1 next year for the Cubs and will have only the name, Kosuke, printed on the back of his jersey.
