Chicago Cubs Trade Rumors: Jerry Crasnick Says Cubs Have 'Reached Out' To Albert Pujols

Jerry Crasnick of ESPN is reporting the Chicago Cubs have contacted the prize the of 2012 off-season, Albert Pujols:

The Chicago Cubs have reached out to the agent for Albert Pujols to express their interest in the three-time Most Valuable Player, a baseball source told ESPN.com on Tuesday.

Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports announced a similar report earlier this morning, alerting northside fans that Cubs are in on both Pujols and free agent first baseman Prince Fielder.

Last year, the Cubs finished the season with a record of 71-91, 25 games behind the first place Milwaukee Brewers. Many analysts expect the Cubs will not be competitive in 2012, but a dearth of hitting talent in the majors right now may inspire the Cubs to act sooner rather than later.
