The trade deadline is fast approaching and thus far there has been very little activity on the trade market. That isn't due to a lack of options though as there are a number of quality players who seem quite likely to get moved between now and July 31st. The question isn't so much if those players will get dealt but when and where. Alas, the trade market is an imperfect market. Players don't always end up in the destination to which they are ideally suited. To that end, we have matched ten players, based on our list of the ten players most likely to get traded this month, with what would be their ideal trade landing spot: Matt Garza, Cubs Ideal landing spot = Indians: If the Indians have any hopes of overtaking the Tigers in the AL Central, they are going to need an impact arm. Garza is the best available and Cleveland already showed with their off-season moves that they are playing to win now, so the rental aspect of Garza shouldn't scare them off. Bizarro wor...

  • The Yanks need pitching and punch. Matt Garza would be a good trade along with moving Chamberlain and Hughes to save a few bucks. Theo would probably be content with 3 farmhands and some money to make the deal.

    Garza would need the best field management and advance scouting the Yankees can bring to support this move but they've shown they have a lot of it.

    On the punch side the Yanks don't need another guy with a high OBP just to run into a double play. They need sluggers.
