The Chicago Tribune is rumoring that the Cubs are pursuing teams to move in and trade for Jacque Jones. If the Cubs can move Jones, i’d be fine with it on one condition. We should trade Jacque Jones only if we go out and get Julio Lugo.

Getting Lugo would give the Cubs the option to move Soriano to RF, which is a lot less scary. Then, you shift Lugo out to CF and keep Murton in LF for one more shot. His OBP should ring well with Piniella. Once Felix Pie is ready to go, shift Lugo to SS, where he’s most comfortable and put Pie in CF. What do you think?
