    Cubs interested in Yunel Escobar? (Update: Traded to the Rays)

    Jon Heyman of CBS Sports tweets that the Cubs and Yankees have also checked in on Escobar. Via his twitter page.

    Um, why?

    Probably because Darwin Barney is on the block, and we need someone to play second base should he be moved.

    More likely because you have a huge need at 3b

    I still think we end up shopping Barney along with Marmol.. Someone like Jedd Gyorko could be a nice piece to develop and have in the lineup sometime next season.

    Why not is the better question?
    #WhyNot?

    People ask me, "Why here? Why Kentucky?", I said "Why not"? It can be done here. It will be done here. Lay the foundation. Recruit and develop. Prepare to win. Day by day. Play by play. A new era of high performance. Why Kentucky? Why not? -Mark Stoops

    That just makes him a cheaper get. In addition, part of Sveum's job description is probably keeping guys like Escobar in check.

    I'll take him. He's a good player and better then most of the scrubs we have had on our team.

    I'd take him at 3rd, but not before I offer Reynolds a cheap one year incentive laden deal

    I turned off sigs a long time back. PSD has enough issues as it is, plus most sigs are pretty juvenile and/or moronic. Site seems to work a little better with them off.
