    Matt Garza Pulled From Tonight's Start - Trade to Rangers Near

    It'll be interesting to see if it changed from the original terms leaked last week.

    One report I heard here in Chi_town was he was on his way to Texas and could start Wednesday against the Yankees. That is if he is truly headed there. I'll be at that game since I

    Reportedly Olt, Edwards and a third player.

    Edit: might be a fourth player as well.

    Matt Garza Pulled From Tonight's Start - Trade to Rangers Near

    Hate to see him go but I like the return for him. My question is where does Olt fit if they plan on moving Baez to 3B?

    They're just stockpiling assets. Not like they'll both be at the same level. Plenty of time to maneuver.

    Justin Grimm is the third guy, plus a PTBNL.

    My thinking as well. No reason to make any rush decisions on who fits when and where. Just keep stockpiling these dudes, Olt, Almora, Baez, Soler, Lake, Rizzo, Castro, etc. It will all pay off soon enough.

    The cubs are going to be incredible in a few years if even 50% of these guys pan out.

    Edwards sounds very intriguing. Just read reports on him and from the sounds of it he could be as big or bigger than Olt in this trade.

    I got to see Almora and Voglebach last Friday and Scott Baker was starting his rehab and was rocked big time
    Almora was 0-3 with a walk

    Voglebach was 2-4 1k and a run scored Kid has 14 Hrs on the year and 62 RBI

    And Baker only went 2.2 innings had 6 hits 6 run all have been earned. He is now pitched rehab 5.2 innings given up 12 hits 10 runs 10 earned runs don't see him return to the Cubs any time soon

    Also see Corey Seagar of the Dodgers Friday as well as James Baldwins kid (James) and Jose Valentin's kid (Jesmuel)
    Seagar was 2-5 with 2 RBI, double and a run scored

    As a Rangers fan, I hope trading Olt doesn't backfire like when they traded Chris Davis a couple of years ago.
    I like Garza and hope Texas is able to sign him to a long-term deal after the season.
