So there’s been some talk among Cubs fans surrounding a possible trade. Cubs GM Jim Hendry confirmed on ESPN Radio that he is in negotiations with a National League cellar-dweller willing to unload a left-handed slugger. While I doubt the Phillies are looking to trade their stud rightfielder, there is speculation that among the Reds’ Adam Dunn and Ken Griffey, Jr., Bobby Abreu could be dealt. There has also been talk of the Cubs trading Jason Dubois or Corey Patterson, Jerry Hairston and a pitching prospect for Wagner, Lofton and Polanco.
Again seems unlikely and its still early – the Phils aren’t packing it in yet. But this is how other teams see the Phillies lineup. They’re just vultures waiting for the team to collapse. If anyone wants the low hanging fruit, Terry Adams is available.
From the LA Times: Dodgers still interested in Polanco
From the NY Post:
It’s clear the Yankees are going to be inconsistent at the plate until an outfielder (Pat Burrell?) with a bat is acquired before the July 31 trading deadline.
