do you think we could work out a trade to bring someone over to leadoff for us and have willie get more experience this year and let him take over the job in 2005? If you think so name a few people youd like to see come here and somebody we could afford with this low budget we have...

Ricky wouldn't be a horrible idea. He's cheap, could be used off the bench if needed, and is a veteran presence. Yeah, he's an a-hole, but he might teacha thing or two about baserunning to this team.

I'd like the Rickey show to pass through Chicago. He's been everywhere else, why not here too.

And I want Alex Rodriguez, Ivan Rodriguez, Curt Schilling, and Eric Gagne. Sometimes you gotta take what you can get.

On second though, you'd probably be better off waiting for him to use his one phone call to call you. :D:

To answer the question, I'm sure agents do not encourage players to come to this organization. There's always some "angle" being played-

Chone Figgins from Anaheim would be a good one to go after. He's only 26. He batted .296 last season in 240 at-bats. And he can FLY.

Plus, he's not going to get much playing time in Anaheim. The Angels outfield, consisting of Garret Anderson, Vlad Guerrero and Jose Guillen, is so loaded that they moved Gold Glover Darren Erstad to first base! Jeff Davanon will be their fourth outfielder, which means Figgins won't be doing much besides pinch running, if he's even on the major league roster at all.

The Angels are loaded on outfielders and speedsters. They wouldn't miss Figgins at all. I'm certain we could snag this guy for either Borchard or a minor league pitcher.

I would argue that, it all depends on the player, agent and most important thing to most of baseball, money. I mean, why would players want to go to organizations such as the scrubs and boston, who are known as losing franchises as well(if not for the black sox scandal, boston would have the second longest world series drought, and not us)

Oriole Jerry Hairston Jr would love to come home to Chicago to play.

I'd think Juan Pierre would be easier to acquire than the players that you listed; you don't have to take what you can get, especially if it's Ricky Henderson, then I'll stick with Aaron Rowand.
