A Quick Update

According to Bruce Levine of ESPN1000,
  • Trade talks between the Cubs and Orioles for Brian Roberts are OFF. This could very well be a false report because Levine has been wrong about a few things in the past.
  • The Cubs are looking to trade for Rangers CF Marlon Byrd. Byrd batted .307 last year with the Rangers while playing in 109 games. He would likely platoon with Pie next season.
  • The Cubs are apparently after Jon Lieber. I would rather take my chances with Marquis at this point. Hopefully Gallagher can take one of the remaining two spots open in the rotation.

Thats it for now. Its been a pretty slow past few weeks. We'll update again once something noteworthy happens!
