Yankees Trade Rumors: Latest on Matt Garza

Getting back to work today. The Yankees “desperately seek a No. 2 starter, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, and the Cubs’ Matt Garza is one of the best still left available on the trade block. Let’s take a look at the latest.

  • Heyman sees the Yankees quest for a No. 2 to be a choice between Edwin Jackson and Matt Garza.
  • The Yankees like both but are waiting for the best deal available, according to Ken Rosenthal.
  • The Yankees were unwilling to deal prospects for Gio Gonzalez, whom they really liked, so Joel Sherman thinks its unlikely they deal them for Garza.

    Saw a post here about possibly trading Swisher to Cleveland, doubt it but how about Swisher for Masterson?
    just a thought. They can always find a right fielder. Cody Ross and other alternatives exist.

      I like this idea. Masterson has number two starter potential. Might as well take a chance. Swisher is another guy who just hasn't performed well in post-season. How many of those guys can a team carry?

    • Teams don't usually want to deal a young, cheap starter with potential for an outfielder who is already 31 and is a year away from free agency. It's not a realistic option.

    What are the Cubs looking for in trade. And the A's?

    I'm honestly sick of hearing how these pitching prospects are such GOLD for our Yankees. We all scoffed a few years ago about trading Hughes and Joba….they were gonna be GOLD! How'd that work out? Romine was supposed to be amazing too. On the flip side, Nova was supposed to be a bottom of the rotation guy!

    PROSPECTS are SUSPECTS until they do anything in the show. I personally would have sent both B's to the A's for Gio. He's what Banuelos MIGHT be already….so the cost is really Bentaces…who's been injured more than not.

    Rob so who were they going to get for swisher?
    The 25plus HR and 376obp is nice for the regular season but when it counts……………
    It seems unlikely that they can get Garza or anybody period. Whay we have is what we have.
    But dont worry be positive Phil Hughes will be in better shape and back to 1st half 2010. So wer told

    • Swisher isn't going anywhere. Don't pretend like the regular season doesn't count. It's only going to get harder to make the playoffs when they add another wild card team. Anything can happen in a one-game playoff.

  5. John says:

    Well you did post the Swisher rumor, even though it seemed unlikely. My question as to who would be aquired was legit.
    Of course the regular season counts. And I give Swisher credit for his numbers and the way he tires out pitchers.
    But as Yankees fans we have been raised to expect postseason success as a measurement. Am I wrong?
    No denying he gad failed in that respect.

  6. John says:

    Also no denying they dont win the 09world series if he doesnt hit 29 bombs in the regular season.
    I dont think its asking too much for him to duplicate it in october. As long as hes here I will root for him.

    The Yankees should wait and sign Matt Cain and/or Cole Hamels after next season.
