Earlier this week, we all found out that the Yankees are targeting Matt Garza of the Chicago Cubs.

With the pitching staff having some questions hanging over it, Yankees GM Brian Cashman would prefer to trade for Garza over Milwaukee Brewers starters Zack Greinke and Shaun Marcum, which was reported by CBS Sports Jon Heyman.

In my last story about this situation, I had stated that I think it would be a great move to land Garza, as it wouldn't be just a rental; by landing Garza, the Yankees would have control of him into the 2013 season as well.

We have talked about what players the Cubs might be interested in if the Yankees and Cubs ever start talking about a trade proposal.

Right now, the Cubs would like to try and lock up Garza long-term, but I just don't see it happening, and with the new regime of Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer, I see Garza's days numbered in the Windy City.

Here's the trade proposal I would make if I am Cashman.
