There have been a lot of questions regarding Matt Garza recently. Will he be traded? Where will he be traded? Will he ever pitch for the Cubs again? What in Lord’s name is growing on his chin? Does he enjoy vanilla pudding? What would a team have to give up to get Garza?
Let’s focus on the last question. Major league teams are probably going to offer a package of prospects for Garza. Prospects are awesome, but prospects are risky. Do you know what doesn’t have risk? Things lying around my house. It’s trading time.
Jake’s Trading Package #1: Shoes
Details: 11 pairs of shoes or 22 shoes depending on how the Cubs would be interested in utilizing said shoes.
Pros: I would be getting a pretty good number two pitcher who can lead my rotation.
Cons: I need shoes to go outside unless I want dirt all over my feet. Matt Garza doesn’t want to play with a guy who has dirt on his feet.
Decision Time: I’d make the trade. I have other shoes in the closet in my room.
