Did anyone else see this on ESPN, "The Cubs, who received almost no power production from the left side in 2007, want to add two left-handed hitting outfielders to their lineup. If they can sign Kosuke Fukudome from Japan, that would fill one spot. They've inquired about Geoff Jenkins, and some people in the organization want to see GM Jim Hendry pursue a trade for the Angels' Chone Figgins, a switch-hitter. But the Cubs probably don't have what it takes to land Figgins. The Angels value Figgins so highly, one person with ties to the Los Angeles organization said the team might ask the Cubs for third baseman Aramis Ramirez in return."
I like Figgy... but do we overvalue him a tad? Sure he's a super utility guy that steals a bag better than 99% of the guys playing ball, but not a lot of power. I'll stay with Figgy at 3rd, but only because we don't have a better option at the moment. If we could package something around Figgy, say with Juan Rivera for Aramis Ramirez and a low level prospect, I'd do it.
