Trade Rumors: The Yankees Called About Matt Garza

It seems like the Yankees are leaving no stone unturned in their search for starting pitching and have even called the Cubs to inquire about Matt Garza, according to Joel Sherman of the NY Post.

The Cubs are supposedly willing to listen to offers for every one of their players, but a source told Sherman that, “it is very, very unlikely” that they will deal Garza.

At this point it seems like Cashman won’t be able to make any trades until the December Winter Meetings at the earliest, but it could come much later than that even. The Yankees have been asking around quite a bit and have not like the asking prices at all.

He has asked about the Athletics pitchers, but Billy Beane apparently wants an ace in return for either of his top pitchers. The same goes for John Danks, although Sherman did add that they like Austin Romine.

It seems like this could be posturing by Cashman to try to get teams to drop their prices, but it certainly seems like it could be a long cold winter in the Bronx. At least their own minor league starters are that much closer to the majors so if they have to turn to Freddy Garcia and Bartolo Colon again they could potentially have mid-season replacements.

    Garza would be a great addtiona to the team. He's ptiched in the AL east before and can dominate a post season game. Get it done Cashman!!!

    • Gonzalo says:

      Yes, Garza won't be like most of the pitchers coming from the NL, also if White Sox like Romine that saounds like a very good deal, Danks is a very good lefty pitcher

  2. Tanned Tom says:

    Not a huge fan of Garza, but here's your blockbuster deal: Yanks send A.J. Burnett, Nick Swisher, Ramiro Pena, Phil Hughes, Boone Logan and Hector Noesi ($32 mil) to the Cubs for Zambrano, Garza and Sean Marshall ($22 mil + Garza's salary).
    Then NY goes with Jordan Parraz and Justin Maxwell in RF.
