Cubs talking to 4 teams about Bradley

INDIANAPOLIS -- The Cubs remain confident that they'll be able to trade Milton Bradley by the end of the winter meetings, with four teams now interested in the troublesome outfielder.

Major-league sources said that two new teams have approached the Cubs about Bradley. The Rays and Rangers remain interested, although the Cubs have issues in dealing with either of those teams.

The talks with Tampa Bay have gone on for much of the offseason, and the basics haven't changed. The two holdups are how much of Bradley's salary the Cubs would pay, and what the Cubs would do with Pat Burrell, who would be part of the deal. The Cubs regard Burrell as an American League player.

The biggest issue with the Rangers is money, because until the team is sold, Rangers officials have almost no flexibility.

Trade talks continue to dominate the winter meetings. As reported yesterday, the Dodgers are trying hard to find a taker for outfielder Juan Pierre, and the Pirates have emerged as a surprising possible partner. Sources said Texas is also interested in Pierre, but since neither the Dodgers nor the Rangers can add any money, a deal would require matching up salaries.

The Dodgers are hoping to either get a starting pitcher back for Pierre, who is due to make $10 million in 2010 and $8.5 million in 2011, or free up enough money to add a pitcher from elsewhere.

The Padres, sources said, are shopping both closer Heath Bell and infielder Kevin Kouzmanoff.

All the trade talks are complicated because so few teams say they can add payroll. The Mariners and Brewers are the two teams most talked about as possibly taking on payroll.

All of this send ended up being reasonably suitably said, and what's far more, getting this done moves a cart load of necessity attributes. I've highly recommended your company's proclaimed method for making this key fact float.
