With the New York Yankees recently solving their outfield troubles by acquiring Ichiro, it's time to focus on another one of their soft spots, starting pitching.
Matt Garza is a name that has been linked to the Yankees for a while now. The Yankees are rumored to be interested in the pitcher, and for good reason. Out of all the available pitchers, he's the one they need the most.
The Yankees don't need the shutdown ace that their fans want them to go after. Instead, the Yankees need a quality starter who can handle his own in the American League. Garza fits that and there are several other pros to him as well.
Now the Yankees could decide that the Chicago Cubs asking price is too high and opt to go with another pitcher. I believe with the right price however, Matt Garza is the pitcher that the Yankees need right now.
