There is a ton of good options in the Outfield FA market. Curtis Granderson, Nelson Cruz, Rajai Davis, Nate McLouth, Mike Morse, Shin Soo Choo, Jacoby Ellsbury, Hunter Pence, Corey Hart. Obviously not all on the same class, but the Cubs could pull away, potentially, with 2 above average outfielders
Pull away from what? 2 above average outfielders will not make up the difference between this years Cubs and this years Pirates, Cards, and Reds. That's assuming that neither of those teams better themselves.
Replace our entire outfield with any of the three above and unless we fix the pitching it's an exercise in futility.
Sorry, but I probably worded it wrong . In no way do I think the Cubs can pull away from the other three teams. I meant to say the Cubs could bring in two above average outfielders. Obviously the Cubs would have to add more pieces to compete with the Reds, Cards, and Pirates.
