According to Hot Stove Cubbies, Cub officials said they are going to do what ever to get OF Brad Hawpe from the Colorado Rockies. Hawpe is batting in the 330's with 8 home runs and about 40 rbi's. They are getting sick and tired of the injuries to OF Milton Bradley. Brad Hawpe tops there list of who to go after.
According to the Cubs Corner, the Cubs had 10 scouts over the past week scouting the White Sox's 3B Josh Fields. Field has power but is not showing is this year, he will fill in for the injure Aramis Ramirez until he is healthy. This rumor was posted on the Cubsreporter.com but was removed and it is also on a thread at Cubs.com message board.
According to the Tribune, the Cubs option Jake Fox back to Iowa and activated Aaron Miles off the 15 day DL. I do not like this move at all, Miles went 0-5 against minor league players with 3 strikeouts. Jake Fox will not be at Iowa for long because he will be called up for interleague play. I think it will be to showcase him for AL clubs that need a DH.
I will have the draft recap tomorrow, I did have it done for today but I will just put it all together tomorrow.
