Nate signs with the Cubbies

The Cubs web site posted this story by Carrie Muskat of 3 days ago but no one seems particularly jazzed about this -- 

The Cubs have reportedly added an extra outfielder, signing Nate Schierholtz to a one-year, $2.25 million contract, pending his passing a physical.
The Cubs would not confirm or comment on the deal. General manager Jed Hoyer did say Thursday that the team was still in the market for another outfielder.
A left-handed-hitting outfielder who could play right field was high on the Cubs' wish list. Schierholtz, 28, batted .257 for the Giants and Phillies with six home runs in 114 games last season. He began the year with San Francisco and was dealt to Philadelphia on July 31 along with two Minor League players for Hunter Pence. He made a good impression in his Phillies debut, hitting a home run against the Nationals. His playing time was limited when he fractured his right big toe on Aug. 13.
