That seems to be the buzz according to mlbtraderumors.com:


Cubs Rumors: Bako, Looper, Wolf, Uribe
By Tim Dierkes [January 28 at 11:49am CST]
Fresh off scooping the Cubs' acquisition of Aaron Heilman, ESPN Radio's Bruce Levine has more info about the team's plans.

Levine says the Cubs will sign backup catcher Paul Bako to a one-year, $750K deal once they clear a spot on the 40-man roster. The 2-for-1 Heilman trade takes care of that. The Cubs are still looking at Braden Looper and Randy Wolf if they aren't able to reignite the Jake Peavy talks.
The Cubs have Juan Uribe on the radar as a bench bat and backup infielder.

Exactly what I was thinking. Abreu and Dunn can't find any takers, but Bako could male well over the LM. Absolute craziness.
