Matt Garza Trade Rumors: Chicago Wants 2 Young Players In Return For Garza, According To Report

According to a report from ESPN's Jayson Stark, the Chicago Cubs are basing their Matt Garza trade demands on the precedent set by the deal between Colorado and Cleveland for Ubaldo Jimenez.

We'd still wager heavily that Matt Garza will get traded in the next month. But if it happens, it'll definitely be a heavy-duty kind of deal. One AL executive's description of the Cubs' current model for a potential Garza trade is "the Ubaldo Jimenez deal." Translation: It's going to take two young, controllable players with big upside.
