Matt Garza Texas Rangers

Now that the Matt Garza deal is official, we look at how his acquisition will affect the Texas Rangers this season and beyond.

Former Cubs pitcher Matt Garza is now officially a member of the Texas Rangers. In this podcast, Dic and Bryan break down the deal that sends Justin Grimm and Mike Olt to Chicago, plus two other minor leaguers. Is this a good deal for the Rangers? Will they be getting just a rental player or will they have a chance to sign Garza for next year and beyond? They also discuss Garza’s prospects for performing in the heat of a pennant race and tackle several other matters, including whether or not the Texas Rangers are done dealing. You know, they could still use a solid bat or two in their lineup…

And what happened against Baltimore? Are the Rangers going to slide out of contention no matter what moves they make? How will the Ryan Braun suspension affect Nelson Cruz’ ability to play the rest of the season?
