Now that the Cliff Lee saga has concluded, the rest of baseball can move on as well. Part of that moving on is the fallout from the teams who missed out on Lee. Texas has already kicked the tires on a Garza move, and on Greinke.
Given the scarcity of the pitching market, what would be fair compensation for a pitcher like Garza with three years control, and reasonably inexpensive, given the current contracts?
Is a trade for Mitch Mooreland, Darren O'Day, and Tannor Scheppers too rich? What if Scheppers was replaced by Alexi Ogando?
Mooreland could step into 1B for us right away, Scheppers is a closer of the future type, O'Day helps solidify our bullpen, and if not Scheppers, Ogando can move into the bullpen right away as well.
Is this realistic? Feel free to list your possible Texas trade idea here.
