The Chicago Cubs are once again pushing for another playoff berth and a deep run as they sit in second place behind the NL Central-leading Brewers.


Despite their record and recent performances, this season has been an uphill climb for the Cubbies, as they have dealt with injuries to most major contributors, resulting in lack of depth and consistency across the board.


Now, with the MLB trade deadline approaching, the Cubbies have shown interest in adding another piece to their roster, and that piece is Orioles veteran OF Adam Jones.

The 32-year-old Jones would prove to be a valuable addition due to his outstanding defensive glove and power at the plate.

While this trade looks good on paper, the Cubs may have to give up a good amount in such a deal, with the O's possibly wanting more then usual due to their lack of pieces in the farm system.

Whichever way you cut it, the Cubs would be bringing on a player that has a proven track record on both sides of the ball as well as in the leadership department.
