Marcus Giles for Walker and KPat?

This little nugget in the sidebar of Chris DeLuca's Sunday column:

MARCUS GILES, Braves second baseman
He's eligible for arbitration and has had a rocky relationship with the Braves' front office. He probably will earn $3.5 million next season. Insiders say there is a 50-50 chance he will be traded. Could be had for Todd Walker and Corey Patterson.

The Braves love to take the Cubs crap and put it into their system and see what happens. Look at Farnsworth. They even took the worst Play-by-play announcer in MLB off of our hands. Still, can they do anything with Korey? If I were the Cubs I'd make this deal as soon as possible. Giles is a scrappy guy, that the Cubs can build around.
