According to David Kaplan the Cubs are in negotiations with OF Johnny Gomes. He will probably only get 2-3 million a year with possibly incentives. He would be a good bat to come off the bench but his defense is liability but I think he will be fine.
Also Kaplan reported that the Cubs are planning on only offering P Ben Sheets a 1 year deal on a low base salary with possibly a year for the 2nd. At least the Cubs are offering him something and maybe will take a discount because he likes Chicago. A man can hope.
ESPN Jason Stark says the Cubs have kept contact with P Chan Ho Park and U Fernando Tatis. I really don't like both and are probably on the bottom of there list.
That is it for now but will keep you posted.
