New York Yankees News - November 29, 2011

New, comments

Recovering from the long Thanksgiving break, let's take a look at some news circling the Yankee Universe this morning. 

According to Buster Olney, the Chicago Cubs are open to the idea of trading starting pitcher Matt Garza. Garza, the recently turned 28-year-old and former Tampa Bay Ray, had a career season pitching for the lowly 71-91 Cubbies in 2011. He recorded career bests in WAR (5.0), xFIP (3.19), K/9 rate (8.95), and HR/9 rate (0.64) all while pitching 198 innings. Matt Garza is arbitration eligible in 2012 and 2013, but under team control regardless until the 2014 season.

The Yankees have reportedly expressed interest in Garza, but would likely balk at the idea of trading four or five prospects for him. What would you be giving to give up, Pinstripe Alley?
