  • Cubs reportedly get Garza

    http://www.suntimes.com/sports/32026...ort-staff.html

    So considering this to be an actual done deal, what do you think about this trade? I see some prospects were given up who may have been nice players in the future. I thought these guys didn't want to compete for a few years?

    If it in fact goes thru, it does seem to be a good deal on the short-term. Such a large payroll rather promts one to display a desire to win here and now, methinx.
    Would you start Garza head of Silva in the rotation?

      I would start Garza as my 2 or 3. Silva is a 4 or 5. Garza has 3 years on his contract before any negotiations need to take place, AFAIK.

        I hope the prospects don't pan out because if even one of them does this will look like an awful trade. That was an awful lot to get for a middle of the rotations pitcher.

          I read that only archer is a real top prospect. usually only one in 10 prospects or so really have an impact in the show so that might look worse than it is.

            Well, the Cubs sent off 4 so the odds of the Cubs sending off an impact player just jumped dramatically. The Rays are not the Pirates, they know what they are doing. There are two teams I don't like the Cubs trading with and they are both in Florida.

              We gave up way too much on this deal, three of our top ten prospects for a midrotation starter. Losing Archer is one thing as we have McNutt and Carpenter as similar pitchers. But to give up Lee could turn into a huge mistake as he fields short beautifully and has speed the organization hasn't had in years. The biggest question mark is who the pitcher is in the Cubs get in return as it is speculated to be a lefty.

              Non-Intentional Walk: .315
              Intentional Walk: .176
              Outfield Fly: .035
              Groundball: -.101
              Bunts: -.103
              Infield Fly: -.243
              Strikeout: -.287

                I didn't like the trade when it happened and I still don't like it after much reflection. They simply gave up too much for a mediocre pitcher.
