The Latest Rumors

It's getting about that time: the time for the baseball rumor mill to really get active. It looks like there are a least two somewhat interesting rumors coming the Cub's way. One of which is the prospect of trading for Austin Kearns of the recently shaken-up Reds. I personally don't think this one is going to happen, nor do I think it should happen. Kearns has been a perpetual injury risk - something the Cubs really don't need more of and his numbers have been ominously declining steadily throughout his career. Check out Ivy Chat's scoop on this.

The other rumor we have is the prospect of Moises Alou returning to the Cub outfield. I won't comment because I can't possibly believe this one. There are some other rumors floating around, but none have much substance. They include Preston Wilson, Aubrey Huff, Mark Kotsay, and Mike Cameron.
