Matt Garza is atop the wish list for several teams who need to upgrade their starting pitching.

With 10 playoff spots up for grabs, the vast majority of MLB teams feel like they still have a chance at contention. The 2013 trade deadline will be a stampede of wildebeest at a kiddie pool, fighting to satisfy their needs with a limited supply of veteran talent.

Of the 19 teams featured on this list, several aren't even above .500! And the entire AL East is included! It's more than one month until July 31, so you can't blame organizations for being a bit delusional.

Starting pitching always consumes the trading season, but the Cincinnati Reds and New York Yankees, for example, care more about filling holes in their lineups and benches.

Enjoy peeking into the minds of MLB front offices, including hints as to whom these teams might pursue.
