    Cubs to try and trade Fukudome

    The Cubs are making outfielder Kosuke Fukudome available on the trade market, sources told FOX Sports.
    It won't be easy for Chicago to deal him as he is hitting just .236 with one home run since May 1 and he'll earn $26.5 million through the 2011 season

    Re: Cubs to try and trae Fukudome

    From MLBTradeRumors.com

    The Cubs would love to deal Kosuke Fukudome, but he will earn more than $21MMM between now and the end of 2011, so trading him will not be easy. Click here for more from Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi on Fukudome's availability.

    It's going to be a hard trade. Going to have to trade bad contract for bad contract.

    Re: Cubs to try and trade Fukudome

    The Cubs recently approached the Red Sox about Kosuke Fukudome, according to Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com. Sources in both leagues told McAdam that the Red Sox did not engage the Cubs in talks because of the $21MM remaining on Fukudome’s contract. The Cubs are apparently unwilling to take on much of the $13MM Fukudome makes this year or the $13.5MM he makes next year.
    The Red Sox are debating whether to rely on internal options like Daniel Nava and Darnell McDonald or pursue outside help to fill in while Jeremy Hermida, Mike Cameron and Jacoby Ellsbury are injured. They never exchanged names with the Cubs, according to McAdam.
    The Cubs would like to deal Fukudome, according to recent FOX Sports reports. The 33-year-old is batting .281/.373/.456 with six homers. So far in his two-plus years in the majors, Fukudome has hit better in the first half (.798 OPS) than in the second (.736 OPS).

    This is why I bought a Derek Lee jersey during the season they decided not to put names on the back. Now I have a #25 authentic jersey that will last forever.

    Colvin could be a big time run producer in the near future.
    He needs the at bats.

    He was a fan favorite after his first big league game, held on for about a month and a half, then turned into a blow hard.

    I realize he was an All-Star as a rookie...holy ****, I was going to finish my sentence but realized the whole thing was completely wrong...
