The Guy - Offense
If there's one guy the Cubs could get that would make this team go from mediocre to good, it's Ichiro Suzuki.
He's not young (he'll be 32 come October). He's not cheap (He's due a base of $13 million in each of 2006 and 2007). He's probably not even available (I think that Hiroshi Yamauchi, former chairman of Nintendo, would not only be able to afford him, but might want him for personal ethnic reasons).
But if you could put together a package that the Mariners couldn't refuse, say Jason DuBois, Rich Hill, Jae Kuk Ryu and Brian Dopriak, you do that deal to get this guy.
The Cubs are about to be overloaded at starting pitcher. Good starting pitcher. The core of the offense is awake. A lineup of:
...works very well.
Anyone think they know a package that gets it done for Seattle?
