After seeing so many of these "untradable prospects" over the years turn into jack ****, I don't think anyone is out of the questions on any deal. But, I agree with HeyHey to the point that it has to be the right deal. Just don't give him away. If they went straight up Harden for Vitters, I say make the trade in a second, but I don't think that is what is being discussed here. For me the future is now and we all know how many "homegrown" 3rd baseman the Cubs organization has produced over the years. NONE since Santo!
The Cubs are dead to me.
