    Matt Murton?

    Cubs May Shop Murton
    Jim Hendry may view 26 year-old outfielder Matt Murton as expendable, if only because he's not the left-handed hitter the Cubs crave.

    Murton has a respectable career line of .296/.365/.455 in 289 games. While it would be nice to see his power develop a bit, he's a decent option in right field. Outside of Kosuke Fukudome, the Cubs might end up acquiring an outfielder who is no better than Murton, just because of handedness.

    Even though he's been solid it doesn't seem that the price tag on Murton would be terribly high.
    Cubs are desperate for LH bat, think they would give us Murton and Sean Marshall or Rich Hill for Hamilton. Murton kills LH pitching and would be a nice addition to the bench.

    More outfielders, handedness or not, is not what this team should be shopping for. Also, Hamilton for Murton and a pitcher? No way that goes down.

    I mentioned on a different thread... but what about Griffey & Weathers for Murton & Marmol, maybe even Prior too... don't know if the Cubs would do it and it would suck to have Griffey playing for the Cubs... but I'd love to have Marmol.
