Cubs are About to Acquire Jason Bourgeois and other notes...

It has been reported that the Cubs are poised to acquire utility man Jason Bourgeois from the Astros who was DFA about a week ago. Jason will most likely get a non-roster invitation to spring training to prove that he can play and be in the majors. He will not cost a lot because the Astros will be happy just to get something for him because after 10 days he becomes a free agent and then they get nothing for him. I say they will have to trade a low level prospect. He can play all OF spots, 3B, SS and 2B and most likely 1B but has never player there before. Jason is a 28 year old switch hitter who batted .316 in Triple A last year. He will be a nice addition and could depth in Triple A.

Other Notes:

The Cubs have there eye on outfielders Jermaine Dye, Xaivier Nady and Reed Johnson. I would be in favor for all of them, they will come in to platoon with Kosuke and be the 4th outfielder.

The Cubs will be in attendance to watch P Ben Sheets throw on Tuesday. I just wish the Cubs do sign him.

Jim Hendry is trying to work out trades with the Padres, Blue Jays and Rockies. I just hope he does not over pay.

That is it for now but I will keep you posted.


  1. multiple sources i have talked too, and sun times own gordon wittenmyer refuted the report saying there is no truth to the Bourgeois rumors.

    Besides take a look at his average in the majors he cant hit in the majors.

  2. personally i would prefer Dye over Nady or Johnson

    but all three should come relatively cheap

  3. I know the rumor may not be true but I will still post also, I would rather have Dye over the other 2, too.
