So I guess Matt Garza was online trawling for information about himself yesterday afternoon, because he may have popped over to LOHO and taken a gander at my favorite muppet representation of him.
How do I know this? Because he tweeted this at me:
Which, I mean, okay, I started it. Though I maintain that the mad muppet bomber is FUNNY, while telling a woman she looks like a pig is not. I mean, he could have told me I looked like Animal or Scooter and it wouldn’t have been nearly as mean. And that pig isn’t even a ginger!
What really makes me laugh, though, is that yesterday afternoon, at the height of trade rumors about where he was going, Matt took the time to find the photo, upload it, and tweet it back to me. Thus continues the spate of Cubs who get really pissy with people on Twitter.
Whatever. No it doesn’t.
Anyway, rumors continue to abound this morning, with more and more beat writers tweeting that a deal is “close,” though Yahoo’s Tim Brown says the teams haven’t gotten to the point of exchanging medical information yet. Speculation has three young players coming back this way (two arms and a position player), possibly some combination of Mike Olt, C.J. Edwards, and Neil Ramirez. Sounds like the Rangers are unwilling to let Martin Perez or Luke Jackson go.
We’ll keep you updated as the day goes on. . .
And hey, baseball is back tonight! Jeff Samardzija heads to the hill tonight in Denver. First pitch is at 7:40 pm CT.
