Cubs Trade Rumors: Bryan LaHair, Alfonso Soriano May Be Included In Dodgers Trade

The Chicago Cubs and Los Angeles Dodgers are reportedly still discussing a trade for SP Ryan Dempster. According to Danny Knobler of CBS Sports, the two teams have begun to discuss including 1B/RF Bryan LaHair or LF Alfonso Soriano. However, the deal still might be a long way off:

The inclusion of Soriano or LaHair is still viewed as a longshot, perhaps even a "massive longshot," as one person briefed on the discussions described it.

But the Cubs are desperate to rid themselves of Soriano, and they found little or no interest from other teams, even when they offered to pay almost all of the remaining $48 million on Soriano's contract.

The Cubs are currently 40-57 and 17.5 games back from first place -- and looking to sell some of their veterans for prospects.
