Give me Justin Grimm, Luke Jackson, and Mike Olt for Matt Garza and I'm in.

 

Grimm is a guy that was drafted by Boston in 2007, and I'm sure the front office is very familiar with him. According to Baseball America, he's the 5th best prospect in the Texas farm system. Maybe 4th best, now that Profar has been promoted to the show.

I want Victor Payano as a throw in. 6'6" lefty that can touch 98 and in A ball. This could be a nice high upside throw in in a Garza deal.

I like to see Edwards added, the guy is just intriguing.  In 93 innings he has 122 SO/ 34 W/ 0HR/ and 1.60 GO/AO.  For me

 

Edwards, Ramirez, Olt, + another pitcher (a high upside/ high risk type).  If the Cubs are not getting a MLB ready pitcher I'd like to see 3 minor league pitchers to increase the chances of the Cubs getting an MLB starter.

 

After seeing Parks saying Ramirez is likely a bull pen arm.

 

Edwards, Jackson, Olt + PTBNL or Cash depending on Garza performance.

I agree.

I want Jesus Christ.  He's a relief pitcher and racking up a lot of saves

I personally would like to see the cubs sweetening the pot to get Martin Perez or not even go with the rangers at all and try to go for Taillon of the pirates which i like better if u look at his stat line

That strikeout rate.  The list of players who struck out 30%+ in Triple A and went on to have productive major league careers is not a long one.  

 

Chris Davis is about as strikeout-happy as any successful player right now, and he never struck out 30% of the time in any Triple A season.  His highest was 2011 at 27.6%.
