And, better yet, at least four teams are considering making a trade for Fukudome.

Oh. My. Baseball. Playoffs, here we come.
But will a team actually give the Cubs something worth taking? The Cubs still won’t trade Sean Marshall, attendance still sucks, Carlos Zambrano hugs Mike Quade with words, the Cubs should claim Jo-Jo Reyes, and the Beer Man cometh.
Carlos Pena has been about what the Cubs expected. Does that mean they should hold onto him with the hopes that he’ll come back in 2012?
The Cubs are on the verge of a win streak, people! …against the Astros.
Teams are asking, and Soriano’s hitting. It could happen. Carlos Marmol is the closer again, Mike Quade is talking about Castro and Barney again, Kerry Wood won’t approve a trade again, Pat Gillick is connected to the Cubs again, and Ryan Dempster raises money again.
“Damn, it feels good to be a gangsta.”
Gillick speaks about the possibility of taking a top baseball job with another club, including the Chicago Cubs.
The Cubs get their best chance to actually win a series. Ignore that whole “the Astros swept the Cubs last time” thing.
Ramirez sticking to his no-trade guns, teams want Marlon Byrd but the Cubs aren’t sure about moving him, Carlos Pena could fit with the Pirates, Phil Rogers is hypothesizing, and Paul Sullivan and Carrie Muskat break out the mailbags.
The Chicago Cubs’ right fielder could serve as a decent starting outfielder against right-handers, as well as a good bench bat and defensive replacement.

Another hurdle to trading Soriano falls. Now he just needs to hit a little bit.
Yes, he’s the son of that Gretzky. More importantly, he was thought to be very hard to sign.
It sure seems like the answer is an obvious “NOOOOO! GOD NO!!!!!” But Gordon Wittenmyer of the Sun-Times writes otherwise. I’m not sure that he actually believes it. But he’s written it, and it must be destroyed.
