Bradley for Wells, Who Knows...

Lets get caught up on the Bradley sags again:

The Toronto Sun reported today that the Cubs are talking to the Blue Jays about a Bradley for Wells trade.

"It's early on, but we think this one has some legs," said one Cubs official. "But they aren't the only team we are talking with."

But shortly after that was published the Sun-Times reported that this has no legs and the Cubs have not discussed bringing Wells to the North side according to a Cubs official.

Wells who is owe 5 years and 107 million on his contract and Bradley is owe 2 years and 21 million.

I would only do that if the Cubs can trade Bradley and Soriano for Wells and Overbay.

With that being said the Cubs will only have to pay a million more, with the Blue Jays taking on 111 million in the deal and the Cubs taking on 112 million but that won't happen.

Buster Olney reported that the Cubs could bring a bad contract back in return for Bradley which we already knew and he said if Wells does get trade for Bradley it will be a shocker and he also names other players that have bad contracts, that could be traded and they are Carlos Silva, Derek Lowe, Gary Matthews Jr., Barry Zito, Aaron Rowand, Oliver Perez, and Dontrelle Willis.

On that list, I like Lowe, Zito, Rowand and Willis but not any of the others.

I will keep you posted.
