Gordon Wittenmeyer is reporting that the Cubs are interested in Raul Ibanez, but are balking at the Mariners high expectations for the left handed hitting outfielder.
I am happy to see the Cubs exploring this option. Ibanez would most likely move from left field (where he has appeared 105 times so far this year for the Mariners) to right field. Kozuke Fukudome would move to center, and the platoon of Reed Johnson and Jim Edmonds would slot down the bench another step. The pickup would be a good one as Ibanez has some pop and would give the bench some added depth.
If Jim Hendry does pull the trigger, it would be their first trade with the M's since 1987 when they sent outfielder Gary Matthews to the Mariners in exchange for pitcher Dave Hartnett.
• Cubs Media Guide Trivia tid-bit: The last Cub to hit an inside-the-park Grand slam was Chico Walker on August 21, 1991 in San Francisco.
