According to the Chicago Tribune, the Cubs could pursue left-handed power hitter Adam Dunn. Dunn, who has hit at least forty homeruns in the past four seasons, would make the Cubs a lot better. Although he strikes out a lot, he draws a lot of walks and would fill in nicely in the four spot, not to mention take over in right field as well.
While Dunn is looking for a long term mega deal, the Cubs might be able to draw him in for a two year deal worth about 14-16 million dollars annually. This would allow them to give more time to Felix Pie and Kosuke Fukudome, as well as move Ramirez to the three spot and Lee to the five spot. Dunn is a career .286 hitter in 60 games at Wrigley Field, so he could be in for a big year if he did sign with the Cubs.
