Cubs Willing To Pay $12-15MM Per Year For Fukudome?

UPDATE, 12-6-07 at 7:39pm: Sandy Alderson was on 1090 AM XX Sports Radio tonight. He said the Padres gave Fukudome one of the top two or three offers the team ever proposed.  An answer from Fukudome is expected tonight or tomorrow.

FROM 12-6-07 at 2:23pm:

According to Tom Krasovic of the San Diego Union-Tribune, it "sounds like the Cubs might go as high as $12-15MM per year" for outfielder Kosuke Fukudome. He adds that Fukudome would have to be willing to take less money to play on the West Coast if he is to become a Padre.  Many players have before, so don’t go buying those Fukudome Cubs jerseys just yet.

Krasovic also has a note on Andruw Jones.  Apparently the only other concrete offer outside of the Dodgers was a two-year, $22MM one from the Royals.
