Gammons On The Cubs' Starter Pursuit

ESPN's Peter Gammons has a new blog entry up, with the focus on the Cubs' desire to add a starting pitcher.  Gammons talked to a Cubs official who said, "We almost certainly will do something.  But we really don't want to give up Sean Gallagher at this point."

Here's a quick rundown of the candidates:

  • C.C. Sabathia - Cubs don't believe they have enough to get him.
  • Rich Harden - Gammons doesn't specifically say the Cubs are interested, just that they're monitoring Oakland.
  • Randy Wolf - The Cubs have interest, and Gammons says Wolf would waive his no-trade to go to a contender.  Plus, Wolf treated the Cubs well when they courted him in the 2006-07 offseason.  Gammons adds that the Padres still like Matt Murton.  History has shown that Jim Hendry and Kevin Towers work well together on trades.
  • A.J. Burnett - The Cubs "also keep looking" at him.  Last Thursday, Gammons' colleague Jayson Stark hadn't found "any indication that the Cubs have even batted his name around."
  • Aaron Cook - Gammons says the Cubs would love him, but Rockies' GM Dan O'Dowd said earlier this month, "We're not doing anything with Cookie."
  • Bronson Arroyo, Kevin Millwood - Gammons says the Cubs have "kicked around" these names.
