Wednesday Cubs Hot Stove Round-Up
I'll keep this brief...
- Jerry Crasnick says the Cubs will be in on Ben Sheets if they lose out on Dempster and Peavy. I suppose that could be an and/or since the Cubs were considering both.
- It seems someone in the mass media has finally gotten around to mentioning that Jake Peavy is a huge injury risk.
- Jeff Passan returns and I mostly ignore everything in it.
- Rosenthal says the Padres now want Single-A catcher Tyler Flowers from the Braves instead of center fielder Gorkys Hernandez. He says the Cubs have given from six to eight names for the Padres to choose from.
- Bruce Miles was apparently on the radio and says Felix Pie and Ronny Cedeno aren't of that much interest to the Padres and they're more interested in Josh Vitters, Welington Castillo, Sean Marshall and possibly some others.
