<B>Cubs could be in Ichiro's future</B>
Here's an interesting trade rumor that's worth keeping an eye on.
A Chicago newspaper claims two sources confirmed the Cubs have had internal discussions about acquiring Ichiro Suzuki from the Seattle Mariners to give them the leadoff hitter they're sorely lacking.
The Cubs have yet to initiate talks with the Mariners, but a high-ranking Cubs official said it is something the team might want to pursue in July.
"I haven't had any serious discussions with anyone," Cubs GM Jim Hendry said. "Honestly, my first and foremost priority is to get our own (injured players) back. Come July, we'll see what we need, but right now, it's way too early.
"I haven't had any discussions with anyone despite what everyone is speculating."
The Cubs, after placing outfielder Tom Goodwin on the disabled list Friday, have nine players on the DL. That's the most since the start of record keeping in 1970.
Just found this pretty interesting while reading the paper down here in Tacoma (bout 30 mins south of Seattle) What teh hell is going on with this team, there aren't in that big of trouble yet. I really hope this is just a dumb rumor.
here is the link just to show i am not crazy.
