Matt Garza is reportedly not off limits this offseason, as the Chicago Cubs are being linked to different trades and different free agent signings every day.
Let the fun begin I suppose. Matt Garza was over hyped, and I had no problem with telling Tim Wilken how I felt last winter 5 days after the trade when Rant Sports interviewed him- and I have no problem with telling anyone this. Matt Garza is NOT an ace. He is a glorified 2-3, and if he’s the best pitcher on your staff- that’s a problem and it showed as the Cubs were one of the worst teams of all time in terms of their rotation. Okay maybe not THAT bad…but still…bad.
I would not be upset at all if the Cubs dealt Matt Garza for an outstanding package, and then made a splash at some free agent arms. The Chicago Cubs are only a few good moves away from contending- so it wouldn’t shock me if this is the route they go.
I’m just not as big on Garza as everyone else is/was, so depending on the players involved? I would absolutely be for trading Matt Garza. We’ll find out as Theo Clause will likely bring the Cubs nation some fun presents.
