A Rumor the Cubs will Confirm

Jim Hendry laughed off the Gary Sheffield rumors the other day, but according to the Tribune and the Rocky Mountain News, "Cubs sources" admit they are interested in trading for Rockies' outfielder Preston Wilson. According to the Trib article, the Nationals wanted him but refused to give up Ryan Church and pitcher Zach Day. If the Rockies are looking for a young center fielder and a mediocre pitcher, I should think the Cubs would be able to swing that kind of a deal, as long as they don't ask for Felix Pie.
