The latest murmur around the MLB is that the Chicago Cubs may not find a trade partner for starting pitcher Matt Garza before opening day:

In January 2011, the Cubs then-GM Jim Hendry traded for Matt Garza, who proceeded to have a career year, pitching 198 innings whil a 3.32 ERA and 2.95 FIP. The arbitration-eligible Garza recently signed a 1-year, $9.5M deal with the Cubs.
