These are players that I think the Cubs might look at, in the season or by the deadline. It will be by position.
I don't think the Cubs need to find a catcher in a trade because Hill did good when Soto was out for a week and they have Mark Johnson and Welmington Castilla in the minors. Also they can re-sign Paul Bako if needed.
I also don't think Jim Hendry will be looking at a first baseman because the Cubs have high power Micah Hoffpauir and gold glove Derrek lee. I don't even think there will be any better first baseman then Lee at the deadline.
Second Baseman: The Cubs don't have any middle infielders in the farm and if 1 goes down for a long time, they might be in the market for one.
Bobby Crosby only if Oakland eats half or even more of contract.
Shortstop: The Cubs don't have any middle infielders in the farm and if 1 goes down for a long time, they might be in the market for one.
Christian Guzman, but he is on the 15 day DL right now with a hamstring injury.
Kerry Wood LOL
Any lefty reliever better than Cotts
That is some players, if needed the Cubs will look at.
