Trade for Xavier Nady or Kosuke Fukudome?


The Cubs are 28-35 and look like sellers. They just promised everyday playing time to young OF Tyler Colvin, which will come at the expense of Kosuke Fukudome and Xavier Nady.  Kosuke is hitting.276/.370/.453, but those averages look better than they are because for the 3rd year in a row he started out hot and is now in a tailspin.  Nady is batting .250/.330/.424 and is coming off Tommy John surgery, so his numbers could actually improve.

Fukudome is due $14 million this year and $14.5 million next year.  The Nats could probably get the Cubs to eat a good portion of that.  Nady is due between $3.3 and $5.3 million total this year, depending on bonuses. 

Because of Fukudome's (large) and Nady's (expiring) contracts, it seems either could be gotten by giving up very little.  Could either solve the RF problem this,  and in Fukudome's case next, year?
