Cubs might be shopping around for a new starter this month

Cubs are in the search for a starting pitcher. They need someone who can give them 7-8 innings a game, and throw around 110-120 pitches. Here's some candidates they are thinking about bringing in!

C.C. Sabathia- The Cubs don't believe they have enough to get him. But if they bring him in, they would have a great five starting pictchers, and they have a good bullpen too. 

Rich Harden- Peter Gammons didn'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.
