Matt Garza? Yes Please!

My very top secret inside sources tell me that the Cubs are very close to aquiring Matt Garza from the Tampa Rays.

"Cubs GM Jim Hendry is working feverishly to acquire Matt Garza from the Rays, according to Bruce Miles of the Daily Herald. The Cubs are getting set to send Chris Archer, Hak-Ju Lee, Brandon Guyer and Robinson Chirinos to Tampa Bay, according to Miles. There may be additional parts to the deal for each team."

I got two words to say to this. DO IT! If the Cubs can land Matt Garza I'll put their rotation up against anybody's in the NL Central. You gotta remember that Garza is comming from the AL East and has been facing the likes of the Yankees and Red Sox for the past few seasons. He would absolutely shred the NL apart. Chris Archer is a hell of a prospect to give up, but I'll be happy to trade away a prospect for an already established starting pitcher. Additionally, Garza is still young and isn't a free agent until after the 2014 season.
So here we are, the stars are aligned, the train has left the station, and yet something tells me Jim Hendry will ruin this. Even if he does miraculously land Garza, Hendry will probably end up slamming his pitching fingers in the limo door. Or perhaps he'll forget to sign the right paperwork, and end up accidentaly trading Garza to Japan's Hiroshima Carp baseball team. Well I must be going now. Stay tuned for updates. Or don't. I don't care. I just write this stuff because I like to practice typing.
