    Yeah, I've been going to Opening Day at the Trop for the past 4 seasons. I go visit my Dad that time every year and he's a season ticket holder. It's usually free parking and there is only one bar outside the stadium...which is a good time for sure. Trop is in one of the shittiest areas in Tampa/St Pete...they need to build a new stadium over on Dale Mabry (?) where all the other facilities are.

    You're gonna like him. He's not always "on" but he'll take his turn every 5 games. I think he'll be missed in tampa but there are now 6 starters and he's the odd man out who will bring the most to the rays. the other possibilty was Shields but after last year they couldn't get shit for him.the rays always like propects and it looks as if they hit up the cubs for some of the best young players at their respective positions in the cubs' system. also the cubs picked up perez who in my opinion is much better than a throw in player that he appears to be on the surface.

    awful, gave away 3 TOP prospects, one is a stud pitcher, for a bum in garza who will go 15-11 with a 3.33 ERA......total over paying

    if all starters can finish 15-11...that would be fantastic in a rotation!

In the event that any of those minor leaguers develop into anything more than a replacement level player, this trade isn't going to be good for the Cubs. Garza will be making $10mil per while providing 2-3 WAR while one of the prospects will provide 1-2, have room to grow, and be making < $1mil. In a time when the Cubs don't have anything to compete for besides the biggest decline in ticket sales, this is a poor move by a GM
    who is fighting to keep his job by mortgaging the Cubs future.
    i was being sarcastic..... for a team far from a contender i cant believe they traded all these prospects. I do like garza but he is not the answer.
