Disagree. Garza's value has fallen. As a FA-to-be coming off a significant injury, he has far less value to the non-contending Cubs. Ditto for DeJesus as a $5MM 33 year old CF. And I said a B level prospect.
Bailey will be cheaper, controlled longer, (arguably more durable), and will have thrown twice as many innings with the exact same ERA+ as Garza this year.
