A Competitor that could help the Cubs or get them a nice exchange

Garza throws 30 in a pain free bullpen session!

Chicago Cubs’ ace pitcher, Matt Garza, appears to be ready to deliver in 2013.  Garza is entering the final year of his contract that allows him to become a free agent after this season, during which he is making $10.25 million.  So it’s very much in his interest to pitch well considering he is 29 and his next contract would likely be the last lucrative deal […]
