Forgetting Matt Garza: 6 Sleeper Starters the Blue Jays Should Pursue

The Matt Garza trade rumors are so hot right now.  I'm talking Hansel hot.  And a popular destination is the Toronto Blue Jays.

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports is just one source of this scuttlebutt.

As a Blue Jays fan, no thanks. 

What's all the excitement about for a guy with only three seasons of 10 or more wins, with 15 his career benchmark?  Garza is also supposed to be a big time strikeout pitcher, yet he's never surpassed 200 and only twice had more than 150.  He's built his hype on a mirage of nice ERA and WHIP ratios, but high pitch counts take him out of games early and tax his team's bullpen.

He's a No. 3 pitcher on a playoff team, no more.  If we are going to gouge our farm system to make a play, let's save our prospects to trade for legit talent.

Perhaps like these six guys?
