After hiring Dale Sveum as their new manager, the Chicago Cubs now will move on to making offseason player moves. New president Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer have stated that other than Starlin Castro, no player is untouchable.
That means that many players that were cornerstones at Wrigley Field in 2011 could be gone by the start of 2012. The Cubs have yet to discuss any offers, but with the Cubs having so many holes in their roster, it would not be a surprise if some guys ultimately do get dealt.
The Cubs will need to find some major help in pitching, infield and outfield. In order to do so, they will have to trade talent to get talent.
These are the rankings of the players that the Cubs could get the most in return for.
