Making a pitch

INDIANAPOLIS -- Chicago Cubs and Kansas City Royals personnel got together on Sunday night and had peripheral conversations about possible trade scenarios that could work for the two clubs.

Milton Bradley would be the type of run producer Kansas City would be interested in, while Royals pitcher Gil Meche is someone they would consider trading.

K.C. is looking for a run-producing outfielder and Bradley could fit nicely with the small-market Royals.

Cubs general manager Jim Hendry will meet Monday with several teams he's been talking to over the last few months about Bradley. On the list are: Tampa, Texas and the New York Mets.

Both Cubs manager Lou Piniella and White Sox manager Ozzie Guillen will have 15-minute media sessions Monday afternoon.
