Happy Birthday Matt Garza!

Happy 29th birthday to Matt Garza!

Will the fiery right-hander celebrate his next birthday as a Cub? It’s hard to say given the Cubs’ decision to hold-off signing Garza to a long-term deal and his pending recovery from a stress reaction in his right elbow.

I don’t have any predictions on whether Garza remains in Chicago. He could be dealt this offseason or next July. Who knows?

I do know quality pitching is hard to find and trading a proven top of the rotation arm like Garza’s would come with plenty of risk. Like any potential trade, it’s largely a matter of what’s coming back in return…

As for the b-day celebrations, Garza shares his birth date with a number of current and former MLB players, most notably:

Chuck Finley – 1962

Harold Reynolds – 1960

Jeff Torborg – 1941

Lefty Gomez (HOF) – 1908

Hugh Duffy (HOF) – 1866
