I know the Reds were a hair away from trading for Garza at last year's deadline, but decided the price of Stubbs and Hamilton was too steep. Any chance it's Walt again?
(I doubt it, but could be interesting...)
If that was the case, could be an indictment on Cueto/Marshall/Broxton's health and/or likelihood of returning this season.
Would you do Hamilton, Hoover and Rogers for Garza, Russell and DeJesus? Would be funny if Garza had to play for Baker and alongside Cueto.
If they could make the money work, I'd do it. Garza would step into the rotation now and Russell and Cingrani to the pen. Cubs probably want more. They could probably get better than Hamilton, Hoover for Garza by himself.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
