DENVER – 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.
DENVER – Matt Garza once responded to the nonstop trade rumors by declaring: “I’ll pitch on the freaking moon.” That might be the only place he could escape all the speculation now.
Once the Cubs deal Matt Garza, the spotlight will shift onto Anthony Rizzo and Starlin Castro during the final two-plus months of the season.
It will be different without Matt Garza’s shaving-cream-pie-in-your-face personality around Wrigley Field. The clubhouse will be a quieter place when he’s gone.
Life after Matt Garza is going to be boring. Who else would walk through a Cubs-White Sox game as if it was spring training?
