12:44 PM ET 07.22 | The 24/7 nature of Twitter and the sell-off questions the Cubs have heard since spring training make it easy to forget there are still 10 days left until the trade deadline. Matt Garza has been at the center of the social-media storm, nearly shipped to the Texas Rangers over the weekend and scheduled to make a written-in-pencil start on Monday night against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field. "I'd say 100 percent he's going to be pitching tomorrow," manager Dale Sveum predicted on Sunday at Coors Field. So "Garza Watch" continues, with team president Theo Epstein and general manager Jed Hoyer waiting for the team that will meet their asking price, which is believed to be three players, at least one close to major-league ready, with an emphasis on pitching.

I don't think it will be as successful with the Pirates as it might be with Oakland.

Just trade him to the Astros, who knows? He may turn to be the next NORRIS in the Astros rotation :-) :-)

I guess no one will be defending Braun anymore. What a weasel. Albeit, a very, very rich one.

Sources say for Mike Olt and pitcher C.J. Edwards. I suppose thats better than what the Rangers coughed up last year, or not
