I first wrote about the Matt Garza situation over a month ago when we found out he’d be out for the beginning of the season.  Today, MLBTR had the following to say about Garza’s final arbitration year and his upcoming free agency: Soon-to-be free agent hurler Matt Garza of the Cubs ranks seventh on MLBTR’s Tim Dierkes’s latest 2014 Free Agent Power Rankings despite his prolonged absence from the majors. Garza appears to be set up for a mid-May return, reports Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune. Much like Roy Halladay, Garza’s expected free agent haul could swing wildly based on 2013 results. While that is, of course, the case for any prospective free agent, it is possible to conceive of a wider band of results for a player like Garza. The 29-year-old features a very solid track record and relative youth, but is coming off of a long lull due to multiple injuries. Of course, Garza’s play upon his return will also play a big role in whether the last-place Cubs will look to deal the pitcher to a contender (or, in the alternative, look to extend or re-sign him). I’ve already said my piece in the previous blog linked above, and I just kinda wanted to play with the poll widget so I will pose it to you below.  Please pick your course of action and feel free to explain your rationale in the comments.  Thanks for playing!
