I have a friend who works in the Twins front office. He's not a major player, but is essentially a glorified executive assistant. He has clued me in to various things an hour or three before they became public knowledge a few times over the years. He just texted me saying there is chatter in the office that the Cubs were involved in a "very big trade" that was close to completion.

He speculated it could be the Yankees because of the CC/Pettite news.

I have no verification obviously and this is basically hearsay, just thought I'd throw it on here.

Hope you have a successful career Garza (but not against us).

It would have come together awfully fast if it is a Yankees deal, but then, the Yankees suddenly have reason to work awfully fast.

I think I might go look over the Yankees farm system a bit.

Crockett, if nothing happens within two days I will mercilessly mock you and bring this up every time you try to make some sort of point on this site :P

Cashman has been stomping his foot banging his fist on his desk claiming that their pitching woes will handled internally.
Just might happen.

Haha @ the mocking. That's fine...just remember this isn't my prediction or anything :)

I texted my buddy to see if he has/had heard anything else. He has not.

Hope your right id let Garza walk at a decent cost for them and Im sure there not hurting for that kinda cost. I mean we are talking about the Yankees right?

The Twins/Garza connection makes sense for information distribution, at least. Did the chatter not include names or teams, or did your friend just not want to say?

What type of return would you guess the cubs would get in return? I'm looking over the Yankees prospects and not too many choices: How about Banuelos or Betances, Tyler Austin, and Adam Warren be too much? not enough? about right?

I fear they will try to push one of their so/so players on us, I guess they could also give up draft picks. I would think a third team would be needed, which might be why the twins are connected to all this...

You have to remember that the Yankees 1st round picks aren't the same as the Twins 1st round picks.

Could this involve a fleet footed LFer who DHed his way to some worth while trade value?

Could this be the clearing of the bench per see we all hoped would happen?
