Cubs reportedly close to acquiring Matt Garza

The Chicago Cubs are reportedly close to acquiring righty pitcher Matt Garza from the Tampa Bay Rays, with the package going back to Tampa reportedly consisting of right-handed pitcher Chris Archer, outfielder Brandon Guyer, catcher Robinson Chirinos, shortstop Hak-Ju Lee and outfielder Sam Fuld.

That's quite a haul for the Rays.

The Texas Rangers supposedly had been talking to the Rays about Garza, but if that was the price it was going to cost, then I'm glad the Rangers passed.
