Several posters have alerted me to a George Ofman update on WSCR The Score in Chicago. Apparently Cubs GM Jim Hendry has pushed a scheduled 5:30 CST press conference to 8:00. Ofman has managed to narrow down the trading partner to the Marlins or Devil Rays.
The Cubs have several trade candidates on those clubs: Juan Pierre, Aubrey Huff, and Julio Lugo are the likely suspects. I’ll be at a poker game at 8:00, but I’m sure our loyal Cubs followers will keep you updated in the comments.
