What about a trade with the Cubs for Marlon Byrd? He could serve as our solution for LF and go back to the numbers he put up in Texas by playing in GABP. He's owed $6.5M in 2012 and becomes a FA in 2013. If he doesn't perform we can wash our hands of him. He shouldn't cost that much in a trade since they are trying to get rid of many players to try and replenish the farm system and get cheaper/younger.

What do you think? If you like it who would you give up?
