Mark DeRosa open to Cubs return

Cardinals third baseman Mark DeRosa said he would listen if the Cubs were interested in bringing him back, the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting. DeRosa has hit a career-high 21 home runs this season, but his average his down from his .276 career average.

If the Cubs are interested this winter, ''I would definitely listen,'' said DeRosa, who was shocked and saddened by his trade to Cleveland on New Year's Eve, six months before the Indians traded him to St. Louis.

The Cubs seem content with Jeff Baker, Mike Fontenot, and Andres Blanco manning the second base spot, so a Chicago reunion for DeRosa seems unlikely.
