    I would like to see us sign 2 from this list:
    Joe Saunders, Kevin Correia, Dan Haren, Jeff Francis, Joe Blanton, Brandon McCarthy

    Eric Chavez or Kevin Youkilis to fill 3rd

    Jason Bay OF could come cheap and be a comeback player of the year candidate.

    Delmon Young OF could be worth a look.

    Cody Ross OF might provide some pop.

    Josh Hamilton would be a dream in Wrigley!

    J.P Howell, Mark Lowe for the pen

    Wonder if Brad Lidge would accept a spring training invite? (Sleeper?)

    In this division I don't think we are that far away from competition.

    Rizzo 1B
    Barney 2B
    Castro SS
    Chavez/Youkilis 3B
    Castillo C

    OF
    Soriano/Bay
    Dejesus
    Hamilton/Young/Ross

    Pitching

    SP
    Garza
    Shark
    Haren
    McCarthy
    Camp

    RP
    Marmol
    Lidge
    Howell
    Lowe
    Feldman
    Baker

    Not saying all these signings could happen or should but just killing some time dreaming of a team that would be semi competitive.

    Even a team full of overachieving prospects needs a few veteran puzzle pieces to get the job done. Nobody knows "the plan". Selling us on "the plan" is just keeping the fan heat off the heads of the new white collars in the company. I am all for developing a minor league system but.........put a team on the field who is competitive while doing so. It is possible. Teams have been doing that for well over 100 years but not our beloved Cubbies.

    I still think Hamilton gets 6 years at 20+ from someone

    Think Mark Reynolds could play 3rd for us? He could have some big numbers HR wise.

    Hamilton in blue pinstripes is something I've always hoped for. If only we had started this rebuild sooner and were at a more competitive stage. Awesome guy who I've enjoyed rooting for the last several years.

    I'd be all over Wilson if I had my way. Would be great on a one year deal on/off the field.
    Down in this vagina mine.

    I'd be ok with it if we can't land a bigger fish for 3rd base. He'll likely come cheap.

    The power potential is obviously tempting. His bat might take a dip moving from Camden, but if Reynolds hits something along the lines of .230/.330/.470 with +30 home runs, then I'm a happy-ish camper -- his average for the past four seasons is .225/.332/.472. Part of me is worried that he got too nice of a boost playing in Phoenix and Baltimore, but an OPS over .800 is easily top ten production at third base. Pedro Alvarez with more pop?

    Reynold's glove isn't pretty, and at third base last season the Cubs ranked in the top half defensively, but they also received near the worst offensive production from the position. He could fill in at first, too, on days Rizzo needs a rest.

    Beat writers have made it sound like the Cubs intend to renegotiate with Stewart before pursuing other options, and Hoyer publicly expressed that interest. Regardless, we need a third baseman.

    I heard you were looking for me.
