Another source says (1) the Tampa Bay rays are “certain” to trade Matt Garza this winter, and (2) probably to the Chicago Cubs, according to Ed Price.
Unfortunately for Cubs fans, the Rays really like Andrew Cashner, Brett Jackson, Chris Archer, and Hak-Ju Lee – in other words, literally the Cubs’ four best young pieces. Would it take all of them to get Garza? Of course not. Would it take at least one of them? My guess is the Rays are going to put the screws to the Cubs to try make that happen.
