Most valuable trade commodity

08:15 AM ET 07.06 | At least unofficially, the Cubs lead the majors in one category. Cole Hamels is an All-Star, and Zack Greinke should be one too. But as trade candidates, Matt Garza beats them both, MLB GMs and other top executives suggested in a quickie, informal poll. Maybe that's obvious since Garza isn't a free agent until after the 2013 season, and Hamels and Greinke can be free agents after this season. But with all three star pitchers being talked about on the trade market, it probably needs to be said. ... [The Cubs] are said by one interested party to be asking for three top pieces for Garza. But just because the asking price for Hamels may be just as high (or higher) doesn't mean he will bring the same sort of haul as Garza.

He'd probably be a bust in either place. The media is beating this one to death.

Garza is very high strung. I think you are correct. He'd melt down in either of those markets.

Garza would want to play for a team that is going somewhere. Not for a team that will be rebuilding again.

Garza doesn't have a choice. He doesn't have a no-trade. Or are you talking after 2013?
