The Cubs are targeting utility man Ty Winningtion. He can play 3B, 2B, LF and RF. I would be OK with that move and when Ramirez gets back, he would be a good guy coming off the bench.
Ken Rosenthal says if Jake Peavy is going to be traded, it will be down to the Dodgers and Cubs. The Cubs have to wait for the ownership to get solve and the Dodgers have to move some money around to get a deal done.
Lou Pinella said when Harden returns Marshall will go to the bullpen and Wells will take over the 5th spot in the rotation.
Notes around the NL Central:
Reds 1B Joey Votto was placed on the 15 day DL with a stress related problem.
The White Sox had some scouts at the Astros game and were to believe looking at P Roy Oswalt and SS Miguel Tejada. Roy Oswalt who has a no trade cause said yesterday he will not accept a trade to the White Sox. It looks like no one wants to go the White Sox and can I not blame them.
I will keep you posted.
