07:10 AM ET 07.15 | When Matt Garza took the hill over the weekend, there were many teams watching, some from in the stands at Wrigley Field. The Texas Rangers and Toronto Blue Jays remain the front-runners for a trade with Chicago, according to industry sources. The Boston Red Sox, Cleveland Indians and San Francisco Giants have also expressed strong interest in the pitcher. Garza pitched 6.2 innings Saturday, giving up 10 hits but only two runs. Garza, 29, won his sixth game of the season despite not having his best command against the St. Louis Cardinals in a 6-4 Cubs win. ... The Cubs will have a different schedule for Garza if he is not traded during the All-Star break. The plan is for him to be passed up next weekend when play resumes for Chicago against the Colorado Rockies.

Last place team, stockpiling talent.

Ten hits over six+ innings?
Don't need him.

It's really a non-story until a trade actually happens.

The Giants need this guy. Have you seen their pitching lately (aside from Timmy's no-no)?

The whole team isn't doing well. I don't think one pitcher will fix the Giants. I think they have a post World Series hangover.

They'll be leading the division by July 31.

It should be an interesting second half in the A.L. East.

I think they HTG.

Yes. The rest of the division will be lucky if the Jays even lose two games before the end of August. Ricky Romero will drive up the QEW from Buffalo and throw 3 no hitters and Jose Bautista will surpass Chris Davis in home runs imminently.

Looks like you have taken a few too many pucks to the noggin.

Everybody's been streaky. Really bugs me that John Farrell is going to win Manager of the Year, though.

I can understand where you're coming from.
