Floyd update

At Rotoworld, they talk about Cliff Floyd and his adventure as a free agent this off season:

The Cubs haven't made any progress recently in talks with free agent Cliff Floyd.

The Chicago Tribune reported three weeks ago that the two sides were close to deal, but the paper has had little to say on the subject since. If the season started today, the Cubs would likely go with an outfield with Matt Murton in left, Jacque Jones in center and Alfonso Soriano in right. Trading Jones remains a possibility, but they don't seem to see Soriano as an option in center, meaning they'd have to get a stopgap back with Felix Pie still not ready.
