    Re: Gomes Very Interested in Cubs

    Previous reports have connected the Cubs to outfielders Xavier Nady, Jonny Gomes, Rocco Baldelli, and Reed Johnson. The FOX writers say Nady is the Cubs' top choice unless Dye's contract demands come down.

    Re: Gomes Very Interested in Cubs

    Longer the Cubs wait the cheaper some of these guys will get. At some point they'll have to sacrafice some money for a job. Kind of hoping that is the case and they wind up with Ben Sheets. Right now Sheets asking price is scaring everyone off but I think as some point he'll be forced to take less and hope he has a good healthy season to cash in next winter.


    Go Cubs Go!

    Re: Gomes Very Interested in Cubs

    ESPN Chicago's Bruce Levine writes that the Cubs "appear close to adding outfield depth," and notes that a decision on Xavier Nady, Reed Johnson, Jonny Gomes, or Jermaine Dye "appears imminent."
    You'll notice that all four players are right handed hitters, and yesterday we heard that Nady was the team's first choice unless Dye's price drops. Nady is coming off his second Tommy John surgery, which is uncharted territory for an established every day player.
    Although he's probably the worst hitter of the bunch, Johnson has the ability to play all three outfield spots, plus he's certainly familiar with the team and vice versa.
