Andruw Jones/ Tim Hudson

I think there might be a topic about Andruw Jones already, but I couldnt find it. But anyway, I found this in the Barry Rozner article in the Daily Herald:


E-mailer Sanjay H., my favorite GM not working in baseball today, says Ryan Theriot and Matt Murton can play every day at second and left next year and bat one and two. He also suggests that in order to add power the Cubs should look to acquire center fielder Andruw Jones, who has a year and $13.5 million left on his deal.


In order to interest the Braves, the Cubs should show a willingness to take on Tim Hudson’s contract (three years, $33 million), while the Cubs offer a package of young players who will save the Braves some cash.


I know Hudson's had a bad year, but he's been very good the rest of his career. Unless there's something wrong with him that I dont know about, he doesnt seem like a huge gamble. If the Cubs were to trade for Jones and Hudson, what do you think it would take? I'm thinking maybe Marmol, Ryu, Mateo, Pie, Moore, or something along those lines. But if we made that trade and then signed someone like Loretta for 2B, I think we'd have a very good team.









Izturis/ Theriot






Marshall/ Guzman/ Miller/ or FA like Meche or Padilla


Does this seem possible/ a good idea?
