    Trade thought with the Cubs

    I think the Reds should go after Fukudome to play left and bat lead off. He is hitting over .300 and his ops is .400+ in the lead off spot.
    Stubbs could be moved to 6 or 7 in the line up and it would help the defense in left as well.
    I was in the ORG once, best 6 months of my life.

    I threw this idea out during the last series between the Cubs. Problem is Fukudome is making $14.5M this year but is a free agent after the season.

    He is a tough out, and gets on base. But he is 34 years old.

    I just don't think it will happen with the money part of being a problem.

    Its a complete rental and I am sure the Cubs would throw in money for a decent prospect.

    Maybe we could take Zambrano off their hands as well...

    Guy's a nightmare in the clubhouse. Bad deal. He's also about as much of a wild card as EV. You never know what kind of game to expect from him
