He'll be tied to draft pick compensation if he's dealt in the off season, so there's value there. I think acquiring Mike Olt through way of dealing Garza makes the most sense for the Cubs. Olt can start in AAA if Stewart gets the starting gig (albeit to be flipped, or later platooned with Olt).
Vitters should get one more legitimate shot and will have to broaden his horizons by playing some LF in Iowa. Since we will have acquired a 3B and Soriano will be leaving soon, that's where he'll need to practice his defense. We'll have a lot of depth next year, assuming we add talent through free agency and make a playoff push.
