Kudos to all of you for never mentioning the name Tony Campana.
Oh come on!!! Campana is scrappy even if he weighs less than his bat does

I'm just not sold on Jackson - and wouldn't be disappointed to see him shipped out.
Ellsbury would be high on my list from the five above.
I agree with you on Jackson. Keep pumping him up and trade him because he isn't improving that much. I saw him a good bit last year and the problem was not just his swing. An inordinate number of K's were called and that is a judgment issue on the strike zone. If one is trying to build a powerhouse, unless he completely turns it around I do not see him as a building block or core player.
If he was, he would have stayed in the majors last year. I see a lot of younger outfileders in the system who will soon be passing him up.

Luke thinks we can get David Price for Brett Jackson, Junior Lake, and Austin Reed.
(Price's stock has dropped, due to the injury, arbitration estimate next year, and high ERA)
Even if we trade Garza, a Price trade would more than likely happen in the off season (and be similar in salary).
The baseball writers are in agreement that we can get at least a top twenty prospect for DeJesus.
(If we add a player, that could bump up that value to a top ten pick)
Nate McLouth is our best option in a platoon w/Rajai Davis.
The biggest reason is contract size. McLouth has gained value since his 2 year, $4M deal with the Orioles (I think he just wanted out of Pittsburgh). He'll definitely get a boost in salary, say, 3 years, $15M. Rajai Davis would probably get a deal similar to Scott Hairston's. So that would be a combined $7.5M AAV and both provide solid defense and speed. Depending on the moves we make, we could be competitive as soon as next year. You have to be encouraged that with Jorge Soler and later on, Albert Almora, our OF will have some stability. Hopefully, Almora should be ready by the time they're on the last year on their contracts.

I love reading everyone's projections on who will sign with the cubs in the offseason but if I had to make a guess of what the cubs will do in the next 2 offseason's this is what I think happens: CF: I think we combo package Dejesus with Garza this year, also trade Soriano and then the cubs resign Ryan Sweeney with Brett Jackson for cf. In left field I see the cubs signing a veteran on a 2 year deal someone like Jason Kubel (his option will not be picked up and we get him on a 2yr with a option) and then right field will be Nate Schierholtz/Scott Hairston(until Soler is ready). 3b will be Vitters if he can earn it (I don't think this happens) and I did not include Baez b/c I think he is traded in the offseason. I believe the cubs will make a solid offer to the rays for Price that will be Pierce Johnson, Javier Baez, and another good but not great prospect. This would make the 2014 team: Sweeney,Castro,Rizzo,Kubel,Schierholtz/Hairston,Saltalamacchia/Castillo,Valbuena, Barney. This will be a .500 ball club that could surprise and the big trade of David Price will keep fans happy. The 2015 ball club is what will start a 4-5 year window to win a world series with the signing of Pablo Sandoval as the big signing. Almora, Castro, Rizzo, Pablo, Soler, Kubel, Saltalamacchia/Castillo, Arismendy Alcantara (I believe in this kid). Pitching will be Price,Shark,Appel,Jackson, and Wood. WOW sign me up lol
