Tigers after Cubs pitcher?
January 15, 2012 - Burt Angeli
Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Matt Garza is available for the right offer.
Nick Cafardo, baseball expert for the Boston Globe, believes the Detroit Tigers are interested.
“This is (Cubs general manager) Theo Epstein’s big chip, so when he says he’s not letting him go if he doesn’t get his price, well, he means it,” Cafardo wrote. “He doesn’t have to let him go in the offseason market, because he knows there will be a midseason market.
“The Red Sox, Yankees, and Tigers could all get this deal done. The Sox still won’t let go of their A list guys, the Tigers won’t part with Jacob Turner, and who knows now about the Yankees after their two big moves Friday?
“The Tigers have been relatively quiet this offseason, but they have to feel some pressure from the Indians, who have done some interesting things to bolster their team.”
