You know whose mullet I would love to see in a Cubs uniform... Craig Wilson. The Pirates already look destined for another last-place finish, and once Casey comes back, they still don't have a full-time spot for Wilson. Having Wilson to spell Lee at first, Jones in right, and Blanco behind the plate would be sweet. What would the Cubs have to give up? Hill, Guzman? Sold. Give 'em both for all I care. We don't need more young pitching with much promise and no reward. We need some hitting. Especially some veteran hitting with positional flexibility. The only untouchable in the farm system as far as I'm concerned is Pie. And the only untouchables on the big league club should be Lee and Ramirez. Maybe Cedeno and Murton. Anyone else should be fair game, and the Cubs should eat as many contracts or pay as much cash as necessary to make the deal palatable to the Pirates.
(taps little picture of a microphone)... is this thing on?
